The Ted Talk archive with conversations dating as far back as 1984 is a mind orgasm worth several hours of escape. In other words, settle under a blanket on a Saturday evening of your choosing, put the play button on auto and ready yourself for huge doses of delight.
Most of my favourite TED Talks are by women. Some are funny. Others are provacative. All make me see the world differently. Best of all, they are free to watch though sometimes we forget and that for all the incredible insights and inspiration TED talks have provided the masses over the years, it is expensive to actually attend one of the official main conferences
The “Age of Amazement” in Vancouver where more than 100 activists, scientists, adventurers and change-makers gathered this past April was a cool $10,000. In Tanzania the year before, it would have cost you a cool $6,000 to attend and no, that does not include flights etc.
Luckily, that’s where your remote and blanket comes in. Here are my top five outstanding talks by women. Save them for your Saturday evening snuggle down and don’t forget to share some of your own favourites in the comment box below.
