Video: Pamela Slim / The strength and power for economic recovery is in our youth

Posted by TEDxPhoenix Team on Tuesday, November 1st, 2011


Pamela Slim is an author and business coach who helps frustrated corporate employees break out and start their own companies. Her blog and book, Escape from Cubicle Nation, help people discover work that they’re truly passionate about. Pam believes the key to economic and social recovery is in our youth. Instead of talking about the apathy of the new generation, we need to clear the way and support them to do their thing. As we allow the free minds of our younger generation to escape the traditional corporate world, economic recovery will follow. As Pam learned from Amanda Wang, our greatest pain can be our greatest source of power. There is hope.

Recorded at TEDxPhoenix 2010.

Goran Konjevod is a mathematician and theoretical computer scientist who has taken his origami hobby to the next level by exploring new and original works. His pieces are formed by the tension of the paper (or even metal) when multiple layers are arranged according to their regular or irregular patterns — in a sense, they’re organically discovered rather than invented or designed. Recorded at TEDxPhoenix 2010.
