Jia Jiang - What I learned from 100 days of rejection
Jia Jiang was the recipient of the 2019 Golden Gavel given by Toastmasters International to a speaker of outstanding merit. This is his TED talk and this is what is said on the TED website: Jia Jiang is the owner of Rejection Therapy, a website that provides inspiration, knowledge and products for people to overcome their fear of rejection. He is also the CEO of Wuju Learning, a company that teaches people and trains organizations to become fearless through rejection training. In 2015, he authored a bestselling book, Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible Through 100 Days of Rejection. Several years after Jiang began his career in the corporate world, he took a life-altering risk and stepped into the unknown world of entrepreneurship. His result was everyone's biggest fear: rejection. This was the catalyst that set Jiang on the path to his true calling. To conquer the fear of rejection, Jiang embarked on a personal quest and started a blog, 100 Days of Rejection Therapy. His journey revealed a world that was hidden in plain sight -- a world where people are much kinder than we imagine. He discovered that rejection can be much less painful than we believe and that the fear of rejection is much more destructive than we know. Jiang grew up in Beijing, China and migrated to the United States at age 16. He holds a Bachelor of Computer Science from Brigham Young University and a Master of Business Administration from Duke University. ____________________________________________ This is part 2 from Programme 1 of 2019/20 season - first broadcast on September 7th, presented by Ted Mellamphy, Moira O'Brien & Paul O’Mahony.

Kevin Hart's 3 Secrets to Hilarious Storytelling
From the Charisma on Comman YouTube channel, here is Kevin Hart's 3 Secrets to Hilarious Storytelling - YouTube link. Kevin Hart is one of the funniest men alive.  Whether in interviews with Ellen Degeneres or George Lopez, or his standup specials, he tells absolutely hilarious stories.  In fact, most of his standup routine consists of him telling stories.  But he does it in such a way that hooks an audience and never lets go, partially because he is able to include so many jokes.   It's not that Kevin Hart's life is inherently more interesting than the rest of ours.  He is just a better storyteller.  The good news is that storytelling is not something you're born with or you're not.  Anyone can learn to tell the kind of funny stories that made Kevin famous.  You just need to know the most important pieces.   While there are many storytelling techniques and styles that will enable you to captivate an audience, ultimately, the best storytellers share a few things in common: they get attention, they commit, and they are constantly refining their craft.  These fundamentals can be used in any kind of story but they are especially useful for funny stories.   So if you want to know how to tell a story better or you are just are interested in what makes Kevin Hart's stories so engaging, check out the video. ____________________________________________ This is part 2 from Programme 37 of 2018/19 season - first broadcast on August 24th, presented by Moira O'Brien & Paul O’Mahony.

Wentworth Miller - "The Speech that will make you Cry"
From YouTube this is a speech by actor Wentworth Miller which is entitled "The Speech that will make you Cry".
