Live Podcast with Head of TED, Chris Anderson | Infectious Generosity

August Web Banners-9

February 19 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

A live podcast recording consisting of an hour long deep-dive interview with author and Head of TED, Chris Anderson, in conversation with podcaster and author, Danielle Newnham.

There will be a session of audience Q&A with Chris at the end.

Infectious Generosity

“Generosity is at the heart of being human. It’s how we’ve co-operated, innovated and grown as a civilization. It’s what makes me into we, net takers into net givers, selfishness into selflessness.”

Infectious Generosity is the idea that through the power of the internet, small acts of thoughtfulness spread to change lives at a scale never experienced before. An initiative housed in TED, this is what they believe to be the ultimate idea worth spreading.

Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat Pray love, says “this book was a much-needed gift to my weary and news-battered heart”.

This will be an inspiring and thought-provoking evening, for those who want to be a part of a world-shifting and hopeful movement; a movement that believes the best of humanity is yet to be realised.
