More and more corporations, government agencies, and nonprofits have started changing their presentation style to mimic TED talks. But how does that really work when you've got a standard slide presentation? Speaker coach and communications consultant Denise Graveline, who coaches speakers at the TEDMED conference, will join WGR to share secrets, tips, and tactics you can steal from TED talks to elevate your public speaking and presenting style. In a lively session with plenty of time for Q&A, Graveline will share insights on use of slides, credits and thank yous, pitchless pitching, making it look effortless and conversational, and much more. She'll also address considerations for presentations to be recorded on video, your audience goals, and planning your content.
Denise helped me immensely with my TEDx talk, providing edits to the content and expert coaching on my delivery, stage presence, and tone.  She also had lots of practical advice and tricks-of-the-trade that I’ll be able to use for future presentations.” – Megan Moynahan, TEDxBrussels speaker and executive director, Institute for Functional Restoration, Case Western Reserve University
