TED-STYLE TALK

A TED-Style Talk is an opportunity to present great, well-formed ideas in under 18 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of questions, in a room with simultaneous translation.

These talks are focused on the power of ideas to change lives and ultimately, the world. TED- style talks are generally delivered without notes, from memory. THEY ARE NOT, as some people think, spontaneous; far from it! They are scripted and carefully rehearsed, often for months.

Our TED-style talks will allow presenters to have some basic outline notes on cards or on a computer, which they can refer to during the presentation. Only absolutely essential Illustrations projected in PowerPoint format are permitted. Traditional PowerPoint presentations that summarize the content are not allowed. All PowerPoint presentations to be used for TED-Style talks must be submitted to the scientific committee Chairperson at Conference@suicideprevention.ca at least 45 days before the conference, by March 27, 2022 at the latest. No modifications may be made to the slides submitted after than date without prior approval of the scientific committee. TED-Style talks focus on you and your presentation, and illustrations must complement rather than repeat what you are saying!

  • TED-style talks are personal. The only reason to give a TED talk is that you feel passionately about something, and your sense of purpose creates an energy boost for both you and your audience.
  • TED talks often take us on a journey. As the speaker shares their transition from ignorance to understanding of some important truth, we follow along in their footsteps.
  • TED talks are concise. Because their time is short (18 minutes), TED speakers have generally done the hard work of cutting out any extraneous ideas. Ideally, every word of a TED talk counts — and that’s very different from the public speaking most of us are used to!

Proposals for TED-Style talks should be in the form of a concise summary of your presentation. Do not say what you intend to talk about; you must present a brief summary of your talk. The proposal should be a concise mini version of the talk.
