I listen to a few TED podcasts a week and I love how TED has created this community of sharing amazing content relevant to our time and society – I love the diverse range of topics and speakers they welcome and discuss.
I’ve picked 10 current (if I had to list all my favourites this blog would never end 😱) talks I thought would be great to start the new year and on topics which I found interesting and informative (I wouldn’t leave too much detail in the descriptions because these are all really worth watching and finding out for yourselves):
