Have You Met TED?

Posted by


A friend recently recommended I watch a TED talk and I have since discovered a wealth of fascinating info on the conference's website. It’s a great platform for anyone seeking inspiration and motivation. Live conferences are held throughout America, Europe, and Asia, and they feature talks on every subject you can think of. They’ve had hundreds of famous presenters, from Malcolm Gladwell to Bill Gates, but some of the best talks feature regular people with big ideas. Best of all, talks are available for free on the TED website.

Martha appeared at TEDMED, a conference that focuses on healthcare and medicine, in 2004. She spoke about the importance of healthcare for the elderly. I highly recommend you check out her talk or explore the other videos to find something that interests you. You can even make a playlist of videos based on a subject that interests you!

  • Hi Kevin,
    It's such a coincidence that you're posting about the TED talks. I love them!!! In fact this morning my son is on the TEDX talks which is the TED talks for kids. He's in sixth grade and today they are doing a TED talk on Sustainability. I am so proud of him!

  • You're so right, TED is amazing. My favorite talk is by Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Burberry in London and my old boss. Her talk on emotional intelligence was one of the most fascinating and moving I have seen and to hear such a smart and influential businesswoman talk about this subject was incredible. Truly inspirational, every leader in corporate America should watch.

  • Hi Kevin! You muste see TED Barcelona the Roser´Battle conference is great!
