TED: Ideas Worth Spreading
TED: Ideas Worth Spreading
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.

SOLD OUT! JOIN OUR WAITING LIST! It's not a virtual event. It's not a conference. It's not a seminar, a meeting, or a symposium. It's not about attracting a big crowd. It's not about making a profit, but rather about making a real difference. LEARN MORE HERE



  1. An honest politician; Peace in the world; Albert Einstein said it well, “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.” The choice is yours…..there is more to life than money. Live life with a purpose, wake up each morning excited that you woke up and make a difference. Money can’t buy that and money can’t guarantee that. “The truly rich are those who enjoy what they have.” Measure the richness of your life by your character and purpose. Lead an honorable life that makes a difference in people’s lives and leaves this world a better place.

  2. Money can buy many things… ALMOST everything… ALMOST… but… if you are small inside… DEEP INSIDE… mean on the inside… petty… you can even have all the money of the world, but you can’t buy Greatness. Thank you Dennis!
