Most great ideas are simple
New ideas usually have a basis in older ones. So do these.
Floris de Vos invented a portable water drill
With his beautiful smile and his enthusiasm he windes you around your finger.
He tells a story. A real one.
You can feel his passion, just looking at him.
He incorporated a quote from a friend. A powerful tool to illustrate your presentation.
“I rehearsed my talk once again in my hotel yesterday evening.”
“It’s 7.04 minutes. 4 secondes to long. Ha, but that’s oke.”
What are you doing minutes before entering the stage? I asked him.
“I pick up the big yellow bag, enter the stage and go for it!”.
Wondering which textmessages you will get today, Floris.
Allard van Hoeken let the tides work for clean energy
Allard told me that he completely rearranged his slides.
Speaking for experts or a wide audiences is different.
Nice simple slides are the result.
He liked working on the slides and making choices to keep them simple.
For experts a complicated graph is allowed, he says. But not at TED.
There you select.
How to stay relaxt?
Allard has no preparation for that. “I will discover on stage”, he says with a smile.
I think that went oké Allard.
