Nic @ TED

I was honoured and very excited to be asked to deliver a TED talk at the 2010 TED Global conference in Oxford – ironically just 20 miles from where I live! 18 minutes to try to sum up a decade of work is a challenge but ultimately very liberating as I stripped back our ideas to their visionary core. I know many people hate public speaking but for some unknown reason I love it – though I have to say that giving a TED was the most nerve racking experience ever.  I hope that the talk inspires people across the planet to joyfully engage with the serious challenges we face. A video of the talk is now online.

    Many thanks for a fascinating talk. I absolutely agree that while an in-depth knowledge of the challenges we face is needed by change leaders, mainstream change makers reject such a burden. Mainstream change makers must be inspired in terms they understand and are most willing to accept… and what better terms than steps of happiness towards the ultimate goal of a sustainable world? Excellent!
