On the TEDActive stage with four other NZ TEDx organisers (left to right): Kaila Colbin (of TEDxChristchurch), Arturo Pelayo (of TEDxAuckland), Sheldon Nesdale (of TEDxTauranga), Trent Yeo (of TEDxQueenstown).
TEDActive is home to the curious souls and brave doers—a six day cacophony of delight and wonder.
A rich global citizenry of awesomeness and actioneers; gathered around a TED-orbit to collide magnificently in a blossom of conversations / intentions / hopes / purposes etc
Personally, hugs and listening were the currency of the week, and by the end, I felt ‘stretched’ by the experience in a way that I’ll never return to the original state.
Thank you TED and all the people who attended / shared / provoked / talked / listened / drank / sang / danced / signed / smiled / questioned / laughed / cried / hugged / high-fived / hid / exalted / winked / gave / took etc.
Here’s a sprinkling of some choice-quotes from the many talks which struck a chord for some reason or another:
The best vision to see the future is peripheral vision.
Don’t tap into your design expertise but your humanity.
Leadership is a choice not a rank.
The cost of innovation is nearly zero.
If you banish the dragons, you banish the heroes.
