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.
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.

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.
