During the lecture Bryan usedinsightfulness of agrandmother’s love to deliver astory. The is the fourth TEDCommandment of “Thou ShallTell A Story”.
DYNAMISM RATING: 4/5I would rate Bryan as a four because of his lack ofvoice inflection when moments of expression called forthem.
He has a calm demeanor and ahumbled speaking voice. Thelecture he gave didn’t requiremuch inflection.
Throughout the presentationBryan seemed to lead intoeach area of the lecture witha lead in point Being honest in what you do. His grandmother asked him in the story to never drink alcoholic beverages. So he didn’t. Throughout the presentation he moved the audience through the content of his lecture with leading statements.
After giving plenty offacts, to show someslides of kidsincarcerated wouldhave hit a home run.
Although as a presenter,you must displayconfidence and an evenminded approach, youdo not have toflamboyant to have thesame effect on youraudience,
His style seemed to besomewhat of a teachingstyle. Where he is theteacher and theaudience are students.Give your audiencesomething they havenever heard of.
Sir Ken Robinsonused a strange gait(at least I thought itwas strange) andcomedic style ofcapturing andkeeping theattention of theaudience during thelecture.
He constantly asked theaudience questions ormade comments thatrequired some form ofinteractivity.
