TEDActive 2014 | A Review

nz tedx organisers

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.
Nicholas Negroponte

Don’t tap into your design expertise but your humanity.
Amanda Burden

Leadership is a choice not a rank.
Simon Sinek

The cost of innovation is nearly zero.
Joi Ito

If you banish the dragons, you banish the heroes.
Andrew Solomon

    Fantastic. What was the nugget of wisdom that you think will stick with you the most? And why?
