TED Talks were born when a media organization, TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), began holding conferences in the mid-1980s. TED events are held all over the world, and the talks address a variety of topics concerning science and culture. Speakers from Jane Goodall and Al Gore to Bono and Bill Gates have given TED Talks. From these emerged TEDx Talks, organized by volunteers from local communities.
Many insightful lessons and stories have been shared via TED and TEDx Talks, so itâ€™s no surprise that many of our authors have participated and shared their own storiesâ€”stories that inspire people in business and in their personal lives.
