Workshop Speaking in Public – TEDxValencia

about Purple PresentationsThe 27th of April I will give a workshop ‘Speaking in Public’ as part of the TEDxAdventures programme of TEDxValencia. The workshop will be held from 17 to 21 at Coworking Valencia.

In the workshop we will practise how to present yourself and how to present an idea as an elevator pitch: a short presentation of 2 / 3 minutes. The group will be between 4 and 8 participants.

You will learn the common sentences and phrases used in presentations for English, we will practise those 2 presentations and you will receive handouts for further practise.

Who can attend the workshop?
The volunteers of TEDxValencia and the attendees of the TEDxValencia conference, see the website for more information.

What about TED?

“The World is divided into two groups of people: fans of TED and people who haven’t heard of it yet.” That is said in one of the promo videos of TEDx and I believe it’s quite true.

TED is an amazing platform where ideas are shared. TED stands for Tecnology, Education and Design. They organize big conferences with a lot of talks on different topics with a maximum of 18 minutes each. All the videos of the talks are uploaded on their website. Why is that great?

• All talks are amazing, inspiring and interesting in one way or another.
• Spreading good ideas is natural: if you experience something great, you want to share it with a friend. Now the best ideas of the world can be shared with everyone around the world.
• If you want to become a better presenter it’s good to see other people present: on the TED website you find lots of examples of great presentations.

And what about TEDxValencia?
The 5th of May there will be a TEDx-event in Valencia: TEDxValencia. The ‘x’ means it’s a locally organized event. I’m part of the group of volunteers trying to make TEDxValencia a big success. Live talks are combined with videos of TEDtalks and artistic performances into a unique event.
