I’ve been a big fan of TED for a long time and have always gleaned incredible insight from their many and varied expert speakers and encourage you to check it out.
TED stands for
Technology, Entertainment, Design
and began in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from
those three worlds and has become much broader to date.
TED’s annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating
thinkers and doers, who are “challenged to give the talk of their lives
(in 18 minutes).”
And, they don’t disappoint! Plus, it’s free to you and me!
Every week talks are added – there are more than 200 in their archive for you to select and enjoy.
I guarantee you’ll learn something new and fantastic!
For example, here is one of my favorites from Sir Ken Robinson who puts forth a case for creating an education system that encourages and breeds creativity.
I came across this talk while looking to help an education client of mine. However, you don’t have to be in education to get something from Sir Ken’s talk.
If you do any public speaking at all, you’ll benefit immensely because he’s one of the very best!
