Chris Anderson launched more than 100 magazines and websites in his career, and the one venture he’s affiliated with that has best withstood the fickle taste of the masses is probably the TED Conference.

As curator of TED, Anderson has brought to the stage speakers from Bill Clinton to novelist Elizabeth Gilbert to talk about topics ranging from how to end world hunger, to the power of empathy. But Anderson doesn’t just line them up, he also works with speakers on how to shape and deliver their talks.

In this conversation with guest host Patt Morrison, Anderson offers pointers on how we can all become better public speakers.

Chris Anderson will join writer Pico Iyer to talk about his book tonight at The Aero Theatre at 8 p.m., the event is presented by Live Talks LA. Click here for more information.
