Hopefully, you are familiar with Ted Talks. If not, here is a quick overview of what they are all about.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
Ted Talks are a brilliant way for Assistants to receive free training from the worlds greatest speakers and leaders.
