Start with Why.

I first discovered Simon Sinek and his “Golden Circle” model through his interview at the latest episode of ‘Marketing over Coffee’, a free marketing podcast available on iTunes. As I googled the name of his book “Start with why”, I came upon a very interesting talk he held in September 2009 for TEDx Puget Sound, an event like the one we are hosting in April.

And of course, as every smart contemporary Marketing and Media professional person he keeps a blog and tweets regularly.

    in my opinion it would be very interesting as well as for ordinary people and communities to be able to organise TED events in a smaller basis.it is important that the ideas are spread no matter where or how…If we take under consideration the fact that sometimes some very important ideas are lost because they did not have the chance to be heard, then the golden circle model along with the TEDx programm would be a solution for the realisation of a great deal of things considering not only the enterprises but the communities as well..

    Hey erasmia!
    That is exactly the spirit of TED and the TEDx independently organized events! On TED.com it is stated that “anyone, anywhere in the world, is eligible to host a TEDx event”, even people under 18 as long as they are supervised by an adult. You still have to apply for a license. Best example: us. We were just 5 unknown students, when we applied for the license. Now we have 8 members on the organizing team. We got our license approved the day after applying! All you need is a bunch of enthusiastic volunteers who think big..

    I know there is TEDxAthens in Greece, so why not a TEDxChania this year? 😉
