About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    What a lot of balderdash ! The first and foremost consideration is the AUDIENCE: their relative interest and inter-relationships, do they know each other, HOW MANY ARE THERE, one speaks differencly to a group of 5 or 50 or 100…. Understanding the audience interests, why arethey listening ….ETC…ETC

    Last comment was 2 months ago blah blah blah

    Hitler is a controversial figure. It’s also that Hitler did not speak a single bit of english in his speech which would make him an incompatible example.

    There are also many non-english speaking figures out there that were deemed as amazing speakers; yet, I don’t see them on here.

    Content is ultimately king. If you do not have good content you are alas, a performing monkey. The speaker has to know his subject and have something to feed his audience.

    i think it depends on your definition of a a good speaker – if your definition is – can persuade people to do insane things – then lots of assholes could be included –

    the speaker neglected to include hitler because he was evil, but being evil doesn’t mean you aren’t good at something like speaking. hitler was one of the greatest speakers (to the masses) of all time. i would have been more interested in an honest presentation that included excerpts from hitler and analyzes them rather than FDR who was mediocre at best. hitler was evil. but hitler was a great orator. can’t trust anyone who gives a speech about great speakers and yet leaves out hitler. our society has become too PC.
