Project Description

Deliver a dynamite talk of 4 minutes or less.


Your assignment is to give a 4-minute talk in the style of TED. This will develop your storytelling skills so that you can become a more engaging and authentic presenter. For a topic, choose something you care about personally, or choose from one of Simon's favorite prompts: share advice for a future generation, persuade your audience to use a product, or share an idea you'd like to see in the world. Remember to tell a personal story.



Embed the YouTube video of your talk in the project gallery of this class. Your final project should include a paragraph describing your process that you went through to arrive at your talk.
