This Ted Talk is one of my favorite Ted Talks I’ve seen. I like this talk because it is so relevant and it is so inspiring. I think the part of this talk that made this so successful and that this is so inspiring is due to the way in which she speaks and the way in which she addresses the situation. She doesn’t just start out by saying the facts of the hotline she starts out by stating something that gets the attention then hits with the actual problem/issue being addressed. There are no visuals throughout this because for this particular talk it is more powerful to leave them out and she knows that. For me, this will help me improve my talk by getting me to understand which visuals I should use and which I should not. It will make me think that maybe I don’t particularly need that visual. Maybe it is more powerful to go without that visual. I think it is very important to know what is more powerful and this video will help me to know what is more powerful, with or without this particular visual. Also, the way in which she talks about her topic is something to take away from this as well because you can hear the passion but it is not over the top and in your face. She also uses a lot of statistics but they are not all crammed together in the beginning, middle, or end and are spread out; this is something else I can take away from this talk as well and apply it to my talk.
