for one opportunity to film what you hope will be a successful, internet-

breaking talk.

Today, with the recent spike toward virtual communication, it is crucial that

we entrepreneurs, business owners and executives learn how to captivate

our audience through a screen, just like TED Talk speakers.

In this article, I’ll share four critical secrets inspired by successful TED Talk

speakers to help fuel your impact in the digital arena.

1. Captivate your audience with your message.

A TED Talk, unlike other lectures, keeps its focus on one “idea worth

spreading.” Such an idea needs to be clear, simple and precise so that the

audience can relate to it and spread it. Sounds simple, right? Not exactly.

The art of focusing on one central idea and presenting it in a short time

frame is a huge challenge, even for the most experienced speakers.

Today in the digital arena, we all experience endless battles over our

listeners’ attention. Whether you use Zoom, Google Hangouts, Webex or

some other platform, your participants have one thing in common: They are

all just one click away from checking out of your session. Think about

yourself: Did you check your phone during the last video meeting you

attended? Well, you are not alone. According to one survey, more than half

of workers are doing other things during virtual meetings, such as checking

emails, texting or surfing the internet, and one in five people say their

meetings are rarely productive.

We must stay compelling, accurate and captivating in this new reality, just

as TED speakers do. Every minute counts — each word scores. Every nuance

is essential. If your message is not exact, precise and innovative, people will

not stick around to listen.

2. Converse with your listeners.

Successful TED speakers do not lecture to their audience; they converse

with them. Simple language, warm gestures and personal stories help them

create a connection with their audience.

With the transition to remote communication, this conversational style

becomes relevant to all of us. The idea of transferring knowledge to others

by lecturing in a one-sided way does not fit the virtual arena anymore. Why?

Because we lose real-time feedback. We can’t see the participants’ full

physical reactions on the screen, so we can’t gather spontaneous physical

clues regarding our communication effectiveness.

That’s why we want to find alternative ways to get feedback from our

listeners. Similar to TED Talks, every lecture or virtual meeting turns into a

conversation where we gather data about our listeners’ experiences and

emotions through questions, activation and other engaging ways.

3. Create an interactive experience.

The artist Amanda Palmer opened her TED Talk standing on top of a small

box holding a flower, enacting a self-employed living statue. She chose to

open this way to convey her idea of asking without shame.

Often we think that if we have something important to share, people will

listen to us. But that is not true. People will not listen to us — even if we

have life-saving information for them — if the information is not presented

engagingly.

TED speakers know that to spread an idea, it is not enough to convey

interesting information. You have to create an unforgettable experience for

your audience.

For example, Yonatan Nir, an international documentary filmmaker and a

former traveling photojournalist, gave a TEDx Talk about how

“documentary filmmaking can transform our relationship with trauma.”

Although his topic is challenging, Yonatan created an enjoyable experience

for his audience by sharing breathtaking images from his voyages

worldwide.

Another great example is the scientist Jaron Rabinovici, professor of

obstetrics and gynecology, who uses a lot of humor while speaking about

“The Future of Making Babies.”

Creating a multi-interactive experience for our listeners is relevant today

more than ever with the transition to the digital arena. Since we lose so

much of the human experience when we enter the “square” on the computer

screen, we need to find new ways to create a rich audience experience.

Every virtual meeting, sale, presentation or workshop has to turn into an

interactive experience. How? Visual and auditory gimmicks, props,

questions, activities, the rhythm of our speech, humor, music, games,

technological effects, surprising screens — all of these are only part of the

many possibilities we have.

The richer the participants’ experience, the more they will be open to accept

our ideas and remember them for a long time.

4. Get the most out of your upper body language.

One of the main challenges that TED Talk speakers have to deal with is

restricting their body language and movement to fit the red rug’s size.

That’s why their primary non-verbal communication focuses on upper body

language, such as facial expressions, smiles, a glint in the eyes, hand

movements and eye contact with the audience.

With the transfer to remote communication and entering into “the cube” of

Zoom, we also lose a large part of our body language. However, like TED

speakers, we can keep our listeners’ attention by getting the most out of our

upper body language by using various facial expressions and hand

movements that support our remote messaging.

Next time you prepare yourself for a virtual meeting, remember how TED

Talk speakers convey messages powerfully.

Pay attention to your message’s focus and precision, and avoid any

unimportant details, which might cause your participants to check out and

engage in a different activity. Convey your message in a conversational style.

Make sure that you are conversing with your listeners and not lecturing to

them. In a world where participants are in small squares, get out of the

square. Invest in keeping your audience’s attention by creating an

interactive experience. Use variety, with frequent small changes and

surprises that cause your audience to stay attentive both physically and

mentally. Finally, intensify your energy, your message and your participants’

attention with the intentional use of natural and authentic hand movements

and smiles.
