This article reviews the 2015 TED talk by Suki Kim about her experience living undercover as a teacher for six months in North Korea.
Aside from the powerful core message, Kim’s talk also has several speaking lessons for us, including:
- how to read a speech without being flat and emotionless
- how to use pauses effectively
- how to align words with facial expressions to convey emotion
- how to make every word count
This is the latest in a series of speech critiques here on Six Minutes.
