Seeing the Unseen: TEDxMelbourne highlights December 2013

Published on

I’ve been attending TEDx events and enjoying incredible speakers on TED.com for the last few years. Every time I get fresh perspectives, insights and inspiration for my business and for my clients. Each 18-minute TED talk is packed with ideas worth spreading.

In The Innovation Recipe, we talk about the power of looking outside your own team and your own business, for fresh ideas and different ways to implement innovation. I’ve sliced and diced my highlights from TEDxMelbourne for all my clients who couldn’t attend.

So grab a cuppa and take five minutes out of your busy day for some food for thought.

Warm regards,

Jenny Vandyke, Zumbara Consulting
