In episode fifty-one of The Presentation Boss Podcast Kate and Thomas do another break down of a speech! Again they’re looking at a TED Talk, this one Thomas heard on the TED Talks Daily Podcast. It is a valuable tool to listen to other presentations and think carefully about what other presenters do that you like and can emulate, or that you don’t like and can leave alone.
This talk covers a lot of content and we discover a great, short message tucked into this longer TED Talk. Kate and Thomas pause as the talk plays to uncover the presentation skills and techniques that are brilliant but also make pause about some actions that they feel aren’t the most powerful use of time, words or physical delivery. This is though, an insightful talk about discovery of the story of human evolution from an expert in her field.
What You'll Learn • One of the three strongest ways to open a speech; with a short story• How stance and posture can indicate tone and confidence of a presenter• A powerful use of PowerPoint slides to help reduce length of the speech but increasing audience comprehension• Why we need to make careful decisions about what to include and what to exclude from a presentation• Getting to the point of what you want to say• The emotional power of sharing personal stories• Being careful of assumed knowledge• Understanding what type of humour fits into your presentations• Whether or not to place your audience in your stories
Mentioned In The Show • Ella Al-Shamahi | The fascinating (and dangerous) places scientists aren’t exploring

Estamos deixando de fazer ciência exploratória de linha de frente em uma grande parte do mundo, em lugares que os governos consideram muito hostis ou sob disputa. O que podemos estar perdendo por não estarmos pesquisando lá? Nesta palestra destemida, inesperadamente engraçada, a paleoantropóloga Ella Al-Shamahi nos leva em uma expedição à ilha iemenita de Socotra, um dos lugares mais biodiversos da Terra, e defende que os cientistas explorem as regiões instáveis ​​que poderiam ser o lar de descobertas incríveis.

We're not doing frontline exploratory science in a huge portion of the world -- the places governments deem too hostile or disputed. What might we be missing because we're not looking? In this fearless, unexpectedly funny talk, paleoanthropologist Ella Al-Shamahi takes us on an expedition to the Yemeni island of Socotra -- one of the most biodiverse places on earth -- and makes the case for scientists to explore the unstable regions that could be home to incredible discoveries.

Nous ne menons pas de recherches de terrain dans une grande partie du monde : les lieux que les gouvernements considèrent comme trop hostiles ou en conflit. A côté de quoi passons-nous potentiellement en détournant le regard ? Dans cette intervention audacieuse et étonnamment drôle, la paléoanthropologue Ella Al-Shamahi nous emmène dans une expédition jusqu'à l'île yéménite de Socotra – l'un des endroits au monde les plus riches en biodiversité – et plaide en faveur de l'exploration par les scientifiques de régions instables qui pourraient être le berceau de découvertes incroyables.

En una extensa parte del mundo, no se están haciendo exploraciones científicas de avanzada porque los gobiernos consideran que son zonas demasiado hostiles o están en conflicto. Pero por no explorar, ¿qué nos estamos perdiendo? En esta charla valiente e inesperadamente divertida, Ella Al-Shamahi, experta en paleoantropología, nos invita a una expedición a la isla yemení de Socotra, uno de los sitios con mayor biodiversidad del mundo. También plantea que los científicos deberían explorar las zonas inestables, donde se podrían ocultar increíbles descubrimientos.

과학자들이 탐구하지 않는 신비로운 장소들 | 엘라 알샤마히(Ella Al-Shamahi)

TEDTalks 과학과 의료

최전방 탐사 과학은 세계의 많은 부분에서 배제되고 있습니다. 정부가 판단하기에 적대적이거나 논쟁적인 곳에서 말입니다. 우리는 그저 보이지 않는다는 이유만으로 무엇을 놓치고 있을까요? 이 의외로 재미있고 겁 없는 강연에서 고인류학자 엘라 알샤마히는 우리를 지구상에서 가장 큰 생물 다양성을 가진 예멘의 소코트라 섬으로 탐험을 보내고, 과학자들이 믿을 수 없는 발견의 본고장이 될 수 있는 불안정한 지역을 탐험할 수 있어야 한다고 주장합니다.
