- Focus on topics that interest today’s world-aware audience and that showcase your expertise.
- Avoid memorizing speeches word for word. Learn to maintain your spontaneity and authenticity during the whole speech.

At TEDx Amsterdam, we helped speakers refine their process of planning, preparing and practicing their speech. Ultimately, they were all able to build confidence in their delivery. This meant that on the day of the event, they could share their message in an engaging and enjoyable way with the audience.
As a TEDx speaker, it’s normal to feel a heightened sense of pressure to perform at your best. It’s not uncommon to experience doubt and regret about accepting the speaking opportunity. However, this opportunity is crucial for personal brand development, exposure, and business promotion. Instead of letting nervous energy overwhelm you, try to reframe it as a positive sign that you care deeply about your speech. The key is to learn how to channel this energy in the right direction so that you can feel motivated and excited to speak.
