Why are some presentations spellbinding and some not? Well, this is the question Nancy Duarte takes on as she shares with the audience the secret of an excellent presentation. In this fascinating talk Nancy Duarte explains the model that she developed for designing transformative presentations. She explains the essential qualities of an excellent presentation by analyzing the speeches of Martin Luther King and Steve Jobs.

Lisa Domican is a Wicklow-based mother of two autistic children. She set up the company Grace App Communication, and developed a simple picture communication app in collaboration with a successful games developer that allows non verbal people with Autism and other disabilities to communicate effectively. In interacting with people with autism, Lisa advocates in ‘the 3 As’: Awareness, Acceptance and making Allowances. She hopes through using these steps people can help reduce the challenges that make having living with autism in a world designed for “normal” people so stressful.

Gestures, facial expressions and body movement compose ninety-three percent
of communication–only seven percent of understanding derives from words.
Experts in non-verbal signals will deconstruct video footage of people from
iconic moments in history, past and present, to reveal what was truly being
said. Learn how subtle movements are used to persuade masses, establish power,
and advance careers–most often without anyone knowing it.

Denise Herzing: Could we speak the language of dolphins?

Denise Herzing: Could we speak the language of dolphins?

[ted id=1758]

For 28 years, Denise Herzing has spent five months each summer living with a pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins, following three generations of family relationships and behaviors. It’s clear they are communicating with one another — but is it language? Could humans use it too? She shares a fascinating new experiment to test this idea.

Denise Herzing has spent almost three decades researching and communicating with wild dolphins in their natural setting and on their own terms. The book “Dolphin Diaries” tells her remarkable story.

WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER?

What better way to study an animal than in its natural habitat? Since 1985, Denise Herzing has been doing just that, spending each summer observing a pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins that live in the Bahamas as part of the Wild Dolphin Project. The work allows Herzing to better understand the pod’s social structure, behavior, communication and habitat outside the confines of an aquarium or research facility.

Perhaps most remarkable is Herzing’s collaborative effort to design, build and use an interactive device to let humans communicate with the free-ranging dolphins. The 2011 bookDolphin Diaries tells her remarkable story.
