  1. 1. Rodney     Mullen  “Godfather  of  Modern  Skateboarding”  
  2. 2. Rodney  Mullen  is  a  professional  skateboarder.    He  is  o<en  referred  to  as  “ The   Godfather  of  Modern  Skateboarding.”    This  is  due  to  his  innova?ve  abili?es   ska?ng  and  an  unmatched  level  of  passion  and  enthusiasm  for  his  sport.  Rodney  gives  a  TED  Talk  about  the  effects  of  passion  and  enthusiasm  on  crea?vity  and  the  benefits  of  being  able  to  re-­‐invent  yourself.  
  3. 3. A  collec?on  of  previous  video  parts  opens  the   presenta?on.    Rodney  enters  and  jokes     “This  is  what  I  did  with  my  life.”       During  the  presenta?on,  Rodney   uses  many  different  photos  from  throughout  his  career.    He  also  uses  humor  and  storytelling  to  maintain   the  audience’s  engagement.  
  4. 4. In  terms  of  enthusiasm  and  passion  for  the  subject,  it  may  be  hard  to  Dynamism  Ra?ng:     4   find  someone  beOer.    He  is  a  bit  scaOer  brained,  however,  going  off   on  tangents  only  mildly  related  to  his  presenta?on.  
  5. 5. Rodney  makes  liberal  use  of  storytelling  and  humor  and  appears  to  enjoy  giving  the   talk.  
  6. 6. Rodney  displays  an  enormous  level  of  passion  and  enthusiasm  throughout  his  talk.    He  uses  images  and  videos  as  tools  to  explain  some  of  his  points.  
  7. 7. VS  Sir  Ken  Robinson  is  hands  down  the  beOer  speaker.    He  is  completely  at  ease  giving  his  presenta?on.    He  uses  humor  and  storytelling  very  effec?vely,  both  in  keeping  his  audience  amused  and  paying  aOen?on  and  making  himself  relatable  to  them.    He  is  also  able  to  sneak  key  points  into  the  storytelling,  geSng  his  message  across  without  really  having  to  say  it.    He  maintains  an  even  flow  throughout,  with  no  lulls  or  periods  of  faster  talking.    He  stays  on  topic  for  the  whole  talk,  as  well.      
  8. 8. VS  Rodney  Mullen’s  talk  was  not  that  bad  for  someone  who  rarely,  if  ever,  does  this  type  of  thing.    Like  Sir  Ken  Robinson,  Rodney  was  funny  and  used  stories  of  his  own  to  help  his  talk  along.    He  also  showed  a  level  of  enthusiasm  and  passion  I  have  not  seen  before.    I  found  it  to  be  infec?ous.    On  the  other  hand,  he  veered  off  topic  easily,  by  either  distrac?ng  himself  with  some  of  his  stories  or  geSng  almost  too  excited  over  some  of  the  tricks.    He  also  would  start  to  talk  faster  the  more  excited  he  got.    A  lot  of  the  ?me  he  appeared  to  be  looking  at  the  floor.    Lastly,  his  appearance  is  a  bit  shabby,  but,  he  is  a  professional  skateboarder,  so  you  probably  shouldn’t  expect  much  more.  
  9. 9. Things  I  Learned:  Stay  focused-­‐  It  is  hard  for  the  audience   to  follow  when  going  off  topic.   Speak  slowly-­‐  Again,  it  is  easy  for  the  audience  to  become  lost  when  speaking   too  fast.  
  10. 10. Things  I  Learned:  Be  passionate-­‐  If  you  are  excited  about  your  speech,  chances  are  the  audience  will  be  too.  Use  humor  and  relatable  stories-­‐  People  are  more  likely  to  pay  aOen?on  if  they  like  you/relate  to  you.  
  11. 11. Things  I  Learned:  Have  fun-­‐  Like  the  humor/stories,  people  will  have  fun  listening  to  you,  if  you  have  fun  talking  to  them.  
  12. 12. Things  You  Should  Know   Stay  on  Topic   Speak  slowly  and  clearly   Look  at  your  audience   Be  passionate  about  the  topic  Be  knowledgeable  about  the  topic   Use  humor  and  stories   Maintain  a  certain  pace
