This episode is for Next Level Locals Only!! It is the first episode of the Next Level exclusive podcasts for members (Locals!!). In this episode I share the behind the scenes preparation for the WGFS Ted Talk. If you ever wanted to know what goes into preparing to speak for 750 people and condense my newest lecture into a 12 minute TED talk, this is for you. TED talks are tough because you only have a limited amount of time to evoke some kind of emotion or call to action from the audience. Greg Rose discussed with me the idea of having TED talks at the WGFS. He said I would be perfect for this format and I saw it as a challenge. How do you provide edumatainment, get your point across, leave the audience with a message and provide some humour and a touch of my personality all in 12 minutes? Write, practice, rewrite, practice and keep boiling it down till you get a concise presentation that gets it done! This recording is me doing my reps the night before and just trying to get my language down so it would be more natural on stage. What you hear here is a different version to what I presented the next day as I listened to this recording after taping it and made some last minute adjustments. Hope you enjoy it! Comment on the Yo Jay page and let me know what other exclusive content you would like to hear on the Locals Only Podcast. Lets Do this!!!
If you haven’t seen it yet I have also included the YouTube video version of my TED Talk so you can watch and compare. Cheers! Coach Glass
