Global Village

Building Bridges not Walls

I’ve long been a fan of TED, and TEDx but this was the first time that someone who I consider a friend was giving one of the talks.

Educationalist and freelance Writer Ken Powell gave the talk at the most recent TEDx Whitehaven event earlier this year. His theme was ‘Why we need to embrace the Global Village’

Ken started his talk wearing a skirt. Which, to be honest, when he confided via Facebook that he was going to do this I was a little concerned. Was it just a gimmick? Would the message, or theme of his talk be over shadowed by his choice of apparel? Needless to say I needed have worried, and probably should have known better.
