CEO Gifford Booth takes us on a journey at the 2013 TEDxTeachersCollege at Columbia University’s Teacher’s College. In his talk, “Ladies and Gentlemen, Direct Your Attention,” he joyfully confronts stagefright and the power of being present both personally and in the professional world.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. The 2013 TEDxTeachersCollege focused on mindfulness in many different fields, showcasing the profound connection and power we all possess as humans regardless of the work we do. Mindfulness matters in all fields. Mindfulness makes a difference in the world.
