Offering a Compelling & Contemporary Vision for Growing Older
What's a TED Talk?
Don't you love listening to a well-prepared, enthusiastic speaker who knows how to present his or her topic well? That's a TED Talk.
Riveting talks by remarkable people!
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.TED conferences bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less).
Hi there! Thank you for your interest in our TED TALK-based Conversations that Matter.
We have used two tough criteria for choosing the TED Talks to feature in this special series of conversations.Not only does the content have to be compelling, but the presentation has to be memorable as well. Each presents a compelling and contemporary vision for the second half of life.
In a weekly conversation, two or more TED TALKS will be shown and discussed
* The first TED Talk relates specifically to the second half of life. These TED talks are terrific! Each one has a "WOW" factor, meaning there is something about the content or the speaker that makes it a knockout talk, often coming from the most unexpected people.
* The second talk (and sometimes a third and fourth one) continues the theme of the issue in more depth.
* At the end of each conversation there will be a "short" a fresh, funny, enlightening talk under 10 minutes. The last talk is not necessarily related directly to the concerns of growing older EXCEPT to keep your mind expanding ... expanding .... expanding. Not looking back, but looking forward!
