TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less).
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are collectively shaping our world. But a TED conference is broader still, showcasing important ideas from any discipline, and exploring how they all connect.
In the belief that good ideas can improve the world, TED invites the best thinkers and innovators from all the world to share their extraordinary stories.
Livia Cevolini, Marketing & Sales Director at CRP Meccanica and CRP Technology, CEO Energica Motor Company S.p.A., will be among the speakers of the first TEDx Modena. The event is held at the Teatro Storchi on May 27th.
TEDxModena’s theme will be “Move On! – Failure as a learning experience.”, Livia Cevolini will held the speech “In praise of defeat: from failure to success”.
“TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
Talk was given by, e.g., Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende e Gordon Brown.”
