Which are your favourite TED talks? If you love Stories, have you found The Moth?
The Best told Stories on the Web: The Moth
What is The Moth? The Moth is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it. Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.
Here are the Top Stories at The Moth on YouTube. The first one from Anthony Griffith “best of times, worst of times” is 100% intense, only to be watched when you can take a short walk after you finish watching. I love the second video in the list, by Steve Burns on “Fameishness”. Perhaps you should start with Steve?
What do you think of Steve? What other websites have great speeches, stories and examples of powerful public speaking?
