My favorite top 9 TED talks – what about yours?

Today I´ll share with you my current top 9 TED Talks I´ve watched repeatedly.

TED-logoAll in all this is one inspiring, eye-opening and entertaining hour.



The talks are actually about different topics. I chose them either because they have some worth sharing content or the speaker is just  fantastic in his way of presenting/talking.

I just added a quick info to each talk why I chose them.

My favorite top 9 TED Talks:


Dan Pallotta: The way we think about charity is dead wrong

This talk is my favorite because it´s about an important topic and is really well presented. It´s true and eye opening.


Ken Jennings: Watson, Jeopardy and me, the obsolete know-it-all

This talk is just amazing – it´s about learning and knowledge.  His life story is pretty interesting as well.


Derek Sivers: How to start a movement

Derek Sivers is not only one of my favorite bloggers, he is also a great speaker. Amusing as well as inspiring Talk!


Raghava KK: Shake up your story

This young speaker has not only a great and inspiring idea; his presentation is just really enjoyable. Super likeable person.


Ernesto Sirolli: Want to help someone? Shut up and listen!

I actually like only the beginning of this talk. Especially the part with “Why didn´t you tell us?” “You never asked.”


Hans Rosling: The best stats you have ever seen

Hans Rosling shows some incredible stats about our world. This talk is from 2006 but still eye opening.


David Pogue: Simplicity sells

This talk is pretty old and somewhat freaky but I just like the style of David Pogue. It´s always fun to listen to him.


The interspecies internet. An idea in progress

The idea of an interspecies internet is so way off the chain that I really like it and this talk shows how a interspecies internet could look like.


Eli Beer: The fastest Ambulance; a motorcycle

The story behind United Hatzalah is just amazing.


I´m looking forward to get some of your favorite talks!

Michael Porter about why business can be good at solving social problems. This talk is related to Dan Pallotta´s talk. Definitely worth watching!
