We Love Learning!
Sophie has been working with the TED team as part of the TED Talent Search in 14 cities around the world. Confirmed events will take place in Amsterdam, Bangalore, Doha, Johannesburg, London, Nairobi, New York, São Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Tokyo, Tunis and Vancouver. For the TED2013 Talks, which takes place in Long Beach, California, half the speakers will be selected through this process.
The event took place at the British Library, London, exactly this time last weekend. And what an incredible opportunity! Wow, I was so impressed with all the incredible speakers. My job entails knowing each talk intimately which meant I was lucky enough to hear each more than once and really get to know the subject matter which was always fascinating, inspiring and each individual so unique. I had a wonderful experience working with the TED team who are all vibrant and passionate, so important when providing a platform for disseminating new ideas. If you haven’t hear about TED Talks before then you are in for such a treat. Nothing in the world is like this organisation and the progressive nature of its intentions and its free to watch online!

This is the second time I have had the privilege of working on one of these events and can’t wait for the next one! And to top it all off they asked to play Murmuration! What a honour!
