How To TEDx: The Speaker Matrix

Experienced TEDx organisers will tell you to tailor your management style to each of your speakers.  The problem is, speakers come in all shapes and sizes and knowing what approach to take can be a real challenge, especially if you are a first time event organiser.

I’ve created a matrix that splits speakers into four quadrants based on their personality type and the tone of their talk.  While each quadrant requires a different strategy, the reality is everyone has levels of each style.  Use the matrix to work out which quadrant most suits each speaker and then check out The 4 Types of TEDx Speaker article for more information on what each style means.
