I am a huge fan of TED. I have watched already dozens (maybe even hundreds) of the over 800 TED presentations currently available at ted.com or on their YouTube Channel. I watch TED presentations as part of my personal development journey and also as an example to my University students during my lectures on presentation skills at Kozminski University.
However, today I want to talk about the great concept created by TED called TEDx. As defined on the TEDx website, “the TEDx program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level”. All over the world these TED-like events are happening regularly, and thanks to this the amazing and valuable ideas of thousands of remarkable people around the world, now have the chance to be spread. As with TED, the TEDx presentations are available online on the TEDx YouTube channel.
I had the privilege of being a speaker at TEDx Warsaw. It was by far, one of the coolest experience I’ve ever had. On my TEDx talk I spoke about how to accomplish collaboration “at the highest level“. If you haven’t watch it I kindly ask you to check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks in advance 🙂
Anyway, this post is not about me. Today I want to share with you two outstanding TEDx Talks I had the chance to watch during the past few days that seriously gave me a big wake up call. There are many other awesome TEDx Talks out there, and I am sure I will make another post about some of them in the future, however, this time I focus on these two.
These are two outstanding presentations that really inspired me and got me thinking and re-evaluating the way I have been approaching many things, and as a result, I will most definitely make some big changes.
The second one is by Jonathan Fields, author of another excellent book entitled Career Renegade: How to Make a Great Living Doing What You Love (Amazon affiliate link). Enjoy!
I hope you take the time to watch both of them and that they are as impactful to you as they have been to me.
