Jump on in to episode fifty-four of The Presentation Boss Podcast! This week Kate and Thomas are listening in to a TED Talk recommended by a listener. Thank you to Steve Bates for putting us onto this talk. It’s lovely to watch this talk, it’s so compelling and a slight peek back at what TED was like in 2004.

This talk cleverly leverages the hefty use of metaphor to anchor a concept in the mind of the audience, and the ending even takes Kate by surprise. Listen in as Kate and Thomas play the talk and pause to make comment. There is a lot to learn here about calm delivery, careful selection of details and even storytelling.
