Missing references to other talks?


As someone who knows Sir Ken and has had the privilege of speaking on the same stage as him (luckily not straight after - you definitely don't want to be following him), he has a engaging 'old school' style... number 5 & 6 are the biggest takeaways for me!

Thanks for the link love as well to our podcast we did with him, Gary - much appreciated.

I majored in Speech Communication in college, and I was taught to rehearse if possible, but mainly to know the material, so that I could just go up with a card that had bullet points, which also tends to make it more conversational. So, what Ken says lines up really well with that.

I really enjoy Sir Ken! I've watched his TED talk several times. And I just love his conversational style as it is very engaging.

The first time I heard about Sir Ken was at your presentation in osaka...we saw clip only but I remember going back at the dorm and listen to its ted speech and I got hooked to TED like crazy since then...so thx again for showing me Sir Ken!

**FYI... lately at school I am doing more and more prez for incoming student to school and I also organizing a conference..its worth it to learn great prez skills from you!**

Thank you for exposing me to Sir Ken -- he is brilliant!

Btw, I think it is an unfair competitive advantage when you have a British accent. Sorry, people with British accents just sound smarter to Americans.

Ali..... British accent? We don't have the accent.... Americans do! :)

I just spoke on the same stage as Sir Ken Robinson last week in New York City. This was my first time seeing him live, in person. I was so blown away by his TED Talk, that I cold not wait to see him live, and he does not disappoint.

His comfort level and knowledge of who was in the crowd was spot-on. He spoke for well over an hour, and had the audience on the edge of their seat for the full time.

He is a treasure. See him live if you can.
