TEDxRFT
IMPROVISED TED TALKS

With Slides We've Never Seen.
And Topics From the Audience.

TEDxRFT

TEDxRFT is an improvised TED talk show by Kory Mathewson and Julian Faid.
"Watch us make up completely improvised TED talks"

Many say that presenting a TED talk for hundreds of keen intellectual minds takes years of research, hundreds of hours of rehearsal time and a fancy post secondary education.

We disagree.

Watch us make up completely improvised TED talks using slides they’ve never seen and topics from the audience.

Not only will you not learn anything, you’ll forget things you thought you’d cherish forever.

  • CHALLENGING
  • FUN
  • ENTERTAINING
  • HILARIOUS
