We asked our interns to share one TEDx Talk from 2015 — on any subject — that they couldn’t stop thinking about well into 2016. Below, their picks — from a lesson in public speaking to a look at California’s prisons:
How gangs keep inmates safe | David Skarbek | TEDxWarwick
When dolphins laugh | Benjamin Mee | TEDxTotnes
This is one of my favorite talks of 2015. I only watched it recently, but I find myself constantly talking about it to others.
Charisma versus stage fright | Deborah Frances-White | TEDxCambridgeUniversity
A very funny, engaging, and informative talk about how to project power and charisma in public speaking. The speaker interweaves social psychology, wit, and humor to deliver a talk that is both entertaining and smart.
Martin Pistorius | My Way Back to Words | TEDxKC
Martin Pistorius delivers his story of living with locked-in syndrome in a beautiful, heart-wrenching talk from a perspective that the majority of the world will never experience. Seeing Pistorius onstage with his laptop to communicate somehow conveys his message even stronger than if he was speaking himself.
