85. Speech Breakdown: TED Talk by Dan Ariely “How to Change Your Behaviour For The Better”
It’s just a nice time on episode eighty-five of The Presentation Boss Podcast. In this half hour together, we’re watching a TED Talk that was recommended to us by a listener and doing a live breakdown. Both Kate and Thomas love this talk for it’s effectiveness, efficiency and simplicity. You’ll hear the quote “This talk doesn’t waste any words”.
Should you know of a speech that we should break down on the podcast, we’d love you to get in touch. But right now, listen in for how Dan Ariely keeps a talk moving, gets the audience involved and adds humour to his otherwise data-driven talk.
