TEDxAthens 2011 Talks – Charis Tsevis
by Charis Tsevis
Speaking at TEDx Athens was both a painful but fun experience.
Painful because I had to say my entire story in just 18 minutes. And it’s usually common that it’s more difficult to be brief, right? The first version of my speech was 24 minutes. It wasn’t that hard to get it to 19. But it was quite painful to cut out those last 1or 2 minutes. After the talk though, I asked myself how I ever spoke for more than that amount of time. 18 minutes is the perfect duration of a story.
But participating in TEDx was also fun. It’s like a party for sited people. You have the opportunity to get in touch with a lot of positive energy. Most of all I enjoyed the spirit and the professional approach of the volunteers, especially the younger ones. Great job TEDx Athens!
Looking forward to the next event.
