Watch TEDxStanleyPark 2016 Videos

Isabelle Mercier

I loved attending a live TEDx event. So much. But the live portion isn’t even the half of the power of TEDx talks—watch the TEDxStanleyPark 2016 videos and you’ll see what I mean.

Ideas to Action

Every talk at the 15-speaker event had the common goal of leaving spectators with an idea they could apply in an instant. Whether it was asking, “What if instead of a performance review we had a purpose review?” Or deciding we need to start a movement of authenticity, inspiration to take action was abundant at this year’s TEDxStanleyPark.

Jessica Pautsch

There were some highlights, although each speaker was impressive. I found Jessica Pautsch’s talk on the sharing economy motivational. I became a fan of Galya Westler after she accused me of being social media obese. And I am quite convinced Karn Manhas will change the world.

The opening speaker was entrepreneur Dan Lok. He has an incredible story and gave an exciting message on why great ideas are not enough to change your life. You need to change your self-image. Check out his video and see if it doesn’t change you.

Perhaps the most touching talk of the day was from Doctor Gurdeep Parhar who not only addressed the problem of racism but helped us understand our subconscious bias’ and brought the room to tears with his childhood experience with racism. This talk is striking a chord as the video was posted last week and has already accrued more than 40,000 views. Watch it and you’ll understand why.

YVR Bloggers

The videos are being released every Sunday to the TEDxStanleyPark email list and are also available on the TED YouTube channel. Watch all 15 TEDxStanleyPark 2016 videos and let them inspire action in your life. You’ll be glad you did.

As a blogger affiliate for this event I had the opportunity to interview the speakers as they prepared for TEDxStanleyPark. Seeing how far they came in a matter of months is a testament to the hard work they put into making this their best speech yet and to the quality of speakers chosen. This was an incredible experience and I’m grateful for the opportunity.

Change the World at TEDxStanleyPark 2016

TEDxStanleyPark 2016

Do you want to change the world? This year’s TEDxStanleyPark 2016 conference wants to inspire you to action through awareness, education, and social change. Here are three of the local thought leaders speaking on this topic.

Gurdeep Parhar—Racism is ubiquitous

gurdeep parhar

Physician and UBC professor Gurdeep Parhar says we all have an unconscious bias when we look at others, most of us just don’t realize it. In his TEDx talk he asks why does this happen? Where does this happen? What can we do to eradicate racism?

Gurdeep says we make cultural assumptions and apply it to personal convictions and opinions. We recognize patterns so we associate new things with old experiences. He says when we see ourselves doing this we need to recognize it and then move to the next stage—personalization.


Jules Ku-Lea—One ingredient in some of our foods is slavery

jules ku-lea

Mental health worker and clinical counsellor Jules Ku-Lea is on a crusade to reduce slave labour. She says a lot of products we consume are built on the backs of slaves and by bringing awareness to this she hopes we will start researching the companies we purchase products from and ask more questions.

Forced labour is a 150 billion dollar industry. What can we do to set modern-day slaves free? Jules plans to show us ways to notice forced labour and take action to put an end to it in her TEDx talk.


Ryan Phillips—Child sex slavery is a global epidemic

ryan phillips

Ex-professional hockey player and drug smuggler Ryan Phillips knows what it’s like to be enslaved, spending two years in maximum security prison for drug-related crimes himself. He since experienced an awakening and wants to use his second chance at life to do good in the world. Realizing what you do leaves an impact on others, Ryan wants to lead by example by drawing awareness to child sex slavery.

Ryan’s TEDx talk will focus on his cycling trip through Cambodia and his face-to-face confrontation with the reality of child sex slavery. He says only through awareness, faith, and action can we begin to get this epidemic under control.
