Hello Lovely AMED Person!
I use TED.com talks as inspiration in my work with people and organisations all the time. Here are some of my current favourites:
Dan Ariely - some of our 'blindspots' about decision making...some interesting ideas which can be applied to leadership, communication and marketing
Sir Ken Robinson - great for reminding us how education and academia can kill creativity. Important context for those of us who work with organisations around being creative.
Elizabeth Gilbert - on a happier healthier way to think about the act and process of being creative.
What are yours and why?
Chimamanda Adichie - on the danger of a "single story" or stereotyping.
