TED Talks(2)

The talks from the annual conference called TED—for Technology, Entertainment, Design—continue to be a great source of inspiration and a spur to critical thinking. The annual conference brings together thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives. I have shared many of these talks with my staff and use them as a springboard for conversations and discussion. One that I recently shared was a talk by Bill Dunlap, president of Wafford College, in which he tells the story of Sandor Teszler, a Hungarian immigrant. It is a fascinating story that touches on the Holocaust and segregation and the power of life long learning.
