TED is an annual conference that brings together the minds, passions and convictions of those in Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED)…and beyond. The speakers are amazing, and their presentations are available for all to view at TED.com. The speakers are given only about 18 minutes to speak, which makes it easy to fit an entire presentation within a busy schedule.
I cannot recommend this site strongly enough.
My most recent viewing was of novelist Isabel Allende: Tales of Passion. In this presentation at TED, Allende gives a very inspiring, moving and entertaining look at what can happen to villages, countries and the world when women are empowered. Within her talk, she highlights three women who have overcome great hurdles, and have made huge impacts on the world. You won’t want to miss it.
You can learn more about Isabel Allende, Wangari Maathai, Somaly Mam, and Rose Mapendo at TED.com.
With love and hope for the future,
