TED Talk Tuesdays: Creating Opportunities @ WORK_SPACE

TED TALK Tuesday is a networking gathering where we watch an inspirational video over lunch, discuss the talk, and then eat cake. You bring your lunch (and business cards). WORK_SPACE will provide drinks and cake to celebrate that month’s birthdays. This is a great opportunity to network with other engaged professionals, feel free to share this event with people you’ve been meaning to reconnect with.

The theme of February’s TED Talk Tuesday is creating opportunities for yourself. We will be discussing a presentation from a new organization (for us) called 99u.

About the talk:

Have you ever had an idea that you wanted to be involved in and execute, but it never quite happened for you? For Kristy Tillman, Design Director for Society of Grownups, this was not only true for her, but at times it felt like the defining sentiment of her career. While we live in a world of interconnection, it’s still so easy to feel like we’re not making the impact that we’d like, or that we’re not taking advantage of all of our opportunities. But instead of asking for permission or waiting for opportunities to magically unfold before us Kristy challenges us to make our own opportunities. How? By inviting yourself to the table.
