TEDxStHelier Update 19Aug13 – Must Watch TED Talks

TEDxStHelier will be in Spring 2014, and we will shortly be looking for sponsors for the non-profit event. This is unlike anything that has been to Jersey before. TED is not about business or product promotion, nor a forum for motivational speakers but is a global platform for ideas which shape our world.

Below are some of our favourite TED talks. Tell us what your favourite TED talk is, and why. It would be interesting to see which of the TED ideas we could implement locally
