Welcome to August!
So, we’re halfway through the year. Some of you will be taking time off with the children or maybe taking a break. Well, for the rest of us who have to keep going, here’s some motivation in the form of TED, with TED Talks.
If you’re wondering who or what TED is, according to the website
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less).
And as part of their mission means they,
…believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
TED Talks is a vehicle used by TED to spread their mission with a wide range of subject matters, through videos.
TEDx London is a programme of local independently organised events that bring people together to share ideas.
The talks which I’ve selected today are business orientated, but the good thing about TED is that you can find a talk about almost anything.
Here we go:

In the second video, Social Psychologist Adam Galinsky addresses How to speak up for yourself,
In the last video, Bill Gross, founder of Idealab, shares his thoughts on The single biggest reason why start-ups succeed.
