1) Critique the delivery (eyes, gestures, movement, voice, etc.) of the speaker. What worked? What did not work? What did you like best about the delivery?
In both of the TED-talks, both verbal and non-verbal gestures were used by the conveyers effectively; their eye moments, fluctuation of voice, rest-pause moments, selection of words, voice tone and body movements were quite impressive. What I liked the most was the utilization of real life situations and daily life examples coupled with the slight element of humor that made the conversation more compelling and effectual. In my view, everything they conveyed worked expectedly.
2) Critique the content. What did you think of the organizational structure? How about the presenter's use of humor?
The content was quite logical, rational and evidence-based in nature. This was because both the speakers used statistics and research findings to make connections between events and factors. The most striking quote was “I procrastinate to improvise; others call it procrastination while I call it thinking.” Moreover, their sense of humor kept the audience engaged. I found everything just and appropriate because it helped me change my perspective about problem topics.
3) Did the audience seem engaged? How could you tell?
Audience seemed engaged undoubtedly because it was laughing where expected which is the most evident indication of their attentiveness; it was laughing after hearing the speaker and contemplating the meaning instantly. Moreover, it was responding to the questions of speaker readily.
4) What advice would you give to the speaker moving forward?
Although they are professional speakers yet room for improvement is always there. Being listener, I can best describe the face validity of their delivery; speakers must utilize videos and pictures to make their content more humorous and they must ask questions at the end of the session as feedbacks so that they could improvise their skills further.
5) If you were asked to do a TED talk- what topic is your area of expertise?
I would like to convey TED-talk on the topic of “role of sense of humor in making the conversation effective and how can we arrange our words, voice tone and body language in order to make our message more effective.”
