New to TED Talks?

TED is a nonprofit organization that invites incredible guest speakers to its stage to share the insights they have gained from their experience, education, or research. With a large variety of topics ranging from leadership to technology, science, business and much more, the TED organization is committed to spreading influential ideas with these powerful, 20 minute-or-less videos recorded at conferences around the world.

You can find thousands of excellent presentations on their website at www.ted.com

We believe the lessons and insights of many of these talks are relevant to our work within UW Facilities, and we invite you to come and enjoy these talks with us. Each prerecorded talk typically ranges from 10 to 20 minutes, and will be followed by a brief discussion of our takeaways and lessons learned.
