This was a surprisingly enlightening talk by the CEO of Uber (not a sales pitch).  Worth a cup of coffee, enjoy.

I keep getting asked if I believe in Climate Change.  The timing is excellent as Al Gore just did an update on where we are actually at now.

TED Speech for the Month

September 18, 2015 — Leave a comment

I go to the TED conference each year and I will try to take the time to put more of the really surprising talks into my blog, to save you having to work through hundreds to find them.

One time Tony Robbins was asked to speak, I can’t remember if he was on the planned list or an impromptu addition but he delivered a very memorable speech which ended with a standing ovation.  One thing to notice was just how brilliantly he got himself extra time to speak, which is almost impossible at TED.  It’s a great glimpse of the artform of public speaking.

I was in the audience and sadly they didn’t capture everything he did, but the guy and the experience he delivered was incredible.
