Has a TED Talk ever influenced you? How?
Apart from the inspiration and knowledge that I get, the presentation techniques of the very best talks have helped me many times when giving own presentations. The 18 minute format is something that I try to convince everybody to adopt (and often with everybody) and the personal, often vulnerable, way of sharing your passion, has proven to be a powerful way of engaging and persuading.
