Richard Turere’s TED Talk

The main message in Richard’s ted talk is that the answer is not always violence and that you can make something small that can fix a big problem.

When he was making a joke he would smile or laugh and that would send a message across to the audience that they could laugh. Richard also had pictures to give the audience a better picture of whats going on.

He used a screen with a slide show with the pictures, a microphone so everyone could hear him and a good sense of humour so is was not so sad. 

Humour, eye contact, visual aids

He got his message across to his audience by having a loud strong voice and a interesting topic a introduction, then he started making then laugh at some jokes that he said and it made it more interesting.
