A provocative way to finance the fight against climate change

A provocative way to finance the fight against climate change | TEDxVailWomen | Scoop.it
Will we do whatever it takes to fight climate change? Back in 2008, following the global financial crisis, governments across the world adopted a "whatever it takes" commitment to monetary recovery, issuing $250 billion worth of international currency to stem the collapse of the economy. In this delightfully wonky talk, financial expert Michael Metcalfe suggests we can use that very same unconventional monetary tool to fund a global commitment to a green future.

Memorizing Your Next Presentation Can Sabotage Your Efforts

Memorizing Your Next Presentation Can Sabotage Your Efforts | TEDxVailWomen | Scoop.it
Have you noticed the difference between a presenter who has memorized their presentation word for word and one who riffs off key points? There is a big difference. In fact, it's obvious. The first sounds like the speaker is reading from a script and the delivery is stilted -- a little too slick. The latter sounds confident, relaxed and strangely more in control.
