Long Enough to Be Serious and Short Enough to Hold Attention

Long Enough to Be Serious and Short Enough to Hold Attention

Did you know that TED Talks are limited to 18 minutes? This time is based on neuroscience and strategy and has been proven to keep speakers focused and listeners engaged. According to its curator, Chris Anderson, 18 minutes is the perfect time to be serious and short enough to hold people’s attention. Since people usually speak 125 to 150 words per minute, an 18-minute presentation totals around 2,250-2,700 words. Believe it or not, some of the most influential TED Talks have lasted barely five minutes, a testament to a well-narrated and brief presentation.
