Let's Talk TED

Let's Talk Ted

Innovation is key to creating social good. Inspiration is the driving force behind innovation. Where do we find inspiration? How can we use technology to spread inspiration and in effect, social good, far and wide? Join us in April to learn about TED: Ideas Worth Spreading, the most popular online video library of inspirational talks from all around the world.

What makes this event unique?

It's guided by you. Share your TED videos that have inspired you most, by commenting here or posting it on the Net2Camb Facebook page. We will then pick 3 or 4 videos that work best together, to showcase on the night. Expect invigorating discussion based on TED talks like the ones below, exploring what lessons can be learned from inspirational speakers and the power of using video to share them.

Vijay Kumar: Robots that fly ... and cooperate

“Maybe stories are just data with a soul.” — Brené Brown
Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability

“People don’t buy what you do; people buy why you do it.” — Simon Sinek

“I started out with a dream to make a star in a jar, and I ended up … making things that I think can change the world.” — Taylor Wilson
Taylor Wilson: Yup, I built a nuclear fusion reactor
