How Giving TED Talk Improves Public Speaking – Courtney Spence

Is a Keynote by Next Week Possible? Find Out How.

In Chapter 1 of 19 in her 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, non-profit executive Courtney Spence answers “What Did Giving a TED Talk Teach You About More Effectively Telling Your Story?” The preparation process for her TEDxPeachtree talk in Atlanta teaches Spence to separate her story from her organization and focus on identifying core values and believes. Spence discusses how she then was able to create a narrative arc to more effectively tell her story in the TED Talk time constraints. Courtney Spence returns to CYF for her Year 3 interview. As Founder and Executive Director, Spence leads non-profit Students of the World to empower college students to use film, photography, and journalism to tell stories of global issues and the organizations working to address them. Spence graduated with a BA in History from Duke University.
