TED is Technology, Entertainment, Design and the TED Conference which began as a way to bring together thinkers from the three converging fields, will celebrate 25 years in 2009. My son told me about TED Talks a few months ago, and I loved the very first TED Talk I ever watched. Each TED Talk is 18 minutes (or less) long and is given by “the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives.”
TED Talks are available to be shared under the Creative Commons license and you can make them accessible to your staff or your management team. You can use them as a catalyst for creative thinking and an opportunity to think about problems in a different way.
Here are a few of my favorites:
