Great public speakers: TED Talks

Reddit
Question

Hi. A real fan of public speaking here. Whether it be Politics, a lead singer in concert, a civil rally, whatever, I admire someone who can engage a crowd.My question is: do you share a similar opinion that engaging-public speakers are becoming tougher & tougher to find?It feels like a dying art and it makes me sad.

That's really interesting. I haven't had that impression myself. I think it's because I watch a lot of TED talks at ted.com. I find that many of the speakers there are setting new standards and pushing new boundaries for speaking and visuals. I also love the TEDx events in many local areas around the world. I also have found modern politicians who really engage a crowd.

Does anyone else have impressions on this? Please join the discussion below.
