  • Apr 5 2012: Nina, I work for a global organisation and am part of a team bringing the first TEDx to our people. My question is: what value have you seen in TEDinClass that you think would translate well in to the Learning and Development departments in the corporate world- particularly in global organisations? I'd really welcome your thoughts on this, since having read the blog link above I think what you're doing has great potential in the business world too!

      Apr 5 2012: wow Matt, this is a great idea -- using TED in the corporate learning context -- did you see Agatha Luy's comment above? She shared a story about using TED talks at the office and it seemed a really positive experience!

      One thought I think might translate for both international and corporate contexts is that TED Conversations can be a great way for people to share thoughts that are relevant to their respective contexts, but in a manner that is just enough outside the "normal" context to lower the barriers to sharing ideas that might not otherwise be shared...almost analogous to an intellectual "field trip" ...
      • Apr 5 2012: Thanks Nina. I'll share the blog entry and this conversation with our L&D team. It's certainly something I think we need to start thinking about!
