“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” – Winston Churchill
Creative optimists are the drivers of amazing new solutions and transformations in our world. In this summer session, our quest is to search through TED videos and introduce fellow class members to true creative optimists in any field that inspire us. Since TED study groups have been offered before, our focus this time will be on most recent talks from 2017 or 2018. For those who may not have discovered TED (Technology/Entertainment/Design), please visit to see one of the most wonderful resources on the internet--a clearinghouse that offers insight and inspiration from some of the world’s most stimulating thinkers. Each week we will view and discuss several TED videos, selected by group participants. The only requirements are internet access -- and a willingness to be inspired by optimists!
