TED Talk Thursdays – Ric Elias: 3 things I learned while my plane crashed

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery of them from www.ted.com:

“TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”

This week’s talk is short but powerful. From www.ted.com:

“Ric Elias had a front-row seat on Flight 1549, the plane that crash-landed in the Hudson River in New York in January 2009. What went through his mind as the doomed plane went down? At TED, he tells his story publicly for the first time.”

“Ric Elias is the CEO of Red Ventures, a marketing services company that grew out of Elias’ long experience in business.”

  1. It is nice that he has reflected a lot of things in his life. And it is a good thing that he realized three things that he could applied. I like his questions to his audience how would they change more than anything.
