The 110 techniques of communication and public speaking | David JP Phillips | TEDxZagreb

  • Published on Feb 1, 2019
  • David JP Phillips has spent 7 years studying 5000 speakers, amateurs and professionals in order for the first time in history to detail every single skill a communicator from stage or in a presentation uses in order to deliver their message. This TEDx talk gives you the very most important ones to bring with you to your next presentation or even everyday communication! Jedan od glavnih razloga ljudskog razvoja je komunikacija, kako verbalna tako i pisana. No, da bi komunikacija bila učinkovita potrebne su nam i prezentacijske vještine. Davidova misija je pokazati ljudima što čini najbolje govornike, na koji način uvlače publiku u svoj svijet te kako svatko može razviti tu vještinu. Njegovi TEDx govori “How to avoid death by PowerPoint” i “The magical science of storytelling” imaju preko 2 milijuna pregleda, knjige su mu prodane u preko 30 zemalja, a njegova kompanija je najveći pružatelj edukacija za prezentacijske vještine na Skandinavskom poluotoku. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    Amazing! Especially exciting for me, since it is exactly complementary to what I teach and how I give keynotes. I work "inside out" and David works "outside in" - I will definitely have another look at his approach!

    Fantastic! The way he lowered his voice and knelt down or sat in the chair I'd say was my favorite part and really captured my attention. So glad I came across this!

    That was brilliant! If a Swede can master the skills of presenting in English so perfectly, there's hope for all of us :D :D Was nice that he emphasizes these can be learned if you understand them and put in the practice.

    Awesome video, but I disagree with the pace, I much prefer someone going fast, it is stimulating and demonstrates that the person masters the subject.

  • Elly Ess

    I think this is the problem: We have here a person teaching us about public speaking in a public speaking talk and he is really bad at presenting the talk. The stuff about the body language is not true either. Look at the many people who will thank you, often from the stage, by bending slightly and putting their hands together in front of them. A closed body gesture conveying a beautiful and widely accepted message. So pompous! My brain reacts to a calm pace ..... Yawn....

    • David JP Phillips
      David JP Phillips 3 months ago +2

      You are correct, and I agree, simply couldn't include all the nuances and variations in every single skill.

      @David JP Phillips Hey i liked your presentation. Im already pretty confident when speaking in public, but i always like to improve. You had a few nice tips but also so much useless buffertime. Is there any reason why ted talks cant finish faster in general and focus more on the tips or facts?
