Looking for new and different inspiration for your associations? Check out a TED Talk.

If you haven’t heard of them yet, TED Talks are Technology, Entertainment, and Design presentations under the concept of “Ideas Worth Spreading.” (More on TED Talks here.)

Most of the Talks are about 20min long, which is the perfect length to view over lunch and refresh your mind for the rest of the day.

While TED Talks aren’t specifically about associations we think the concepts can provide inspiration for any organization.

One Response to TED Talks for Associations

  1. Simon, himself, believes and feels his message will change our lives – I get it. This reminds me of my former sales experience where I had to first believe in my product before I could endeavor any sale. Love that this is “biology” not “psychology” proven! (Makes me think of Bones on TV)
