Students of the World founder and Capture Your Flag interviewee Courtney Spence gives a TEDx Talk on the transformational power of multimedia storytelling for disaster relief and community rebuilding efforts. She talks about the potential of students and young professionals to be the changemakers and tell stories of progress that drive awareness around problem solving and sustainable solutions building in areas devasted by natural disaster or environmental distress.
In her 2011 TEDx Talk at TEDxHouston, Nina Godiwalla shares three simple ways to make a corporate work culture more welcoming. Godiwalla's TED talk focuses on what she learned about diversity messaging and more inclusive and welcoming workplace cultures through her investment banking experience on Wall Street, the stories from which she shares in her first book "Suits: A Woman on Wall Street." In 2011 Nina shared her anticipation preparing to give this TEDx Talk down in Houston.
Simon Sinek inspires us. He constantly finds new ways and additional angles to teach us about understanding ourselves, our relationships with others, and how the interconnectedness creates more fulfilling ways to live with a clarified sense of purpose. He also encourages you to believe you can change the world. We believe he is right. Enjoy this amazing talk "If You Don't Understand People You Don't Understand Business" from this Year's 99 Percent Conference.
