A very helpful and motivating post about TED Talks was getting shared quite a bit this past week on LinkedIn Today. And after attending a TEDxSan Jose event last year, and being inspired to give my own Talk then, I just had to see what all the fuss was about. I now understand why.
Many of us aspire to give a TED Talk someday and Nilofer Merchant’s post can serve as your jumping-off point to start preparing for one of your own. It definitely got me seeing what might be possible!
