TED - the superpowers of design

TED and BCG teamed up again for its annual TED@BCG event last October 2017, this time in Milan, Italy. The theme for this session was “Break the Mold,” since the complexity of our times and the speed of change require more concerted investments in diversity and valuing differences in approach to help us solve big problems.

Kevin had the fortunate pleasure of joining a cast of incredible speakers across the realms of art, design, microbiology, technology, social impact, and education. Whether sitting in the audience or watching backstage before it was his turn to step onto TED’s “red dot,” he was deeply inspired by all the great initiatives each speaker was pioneering within their respective fields. Another energy boost was having his wife and son join him in Milan to share in this special moment.

Please enjoy Kevin Bethune's TED talk on the "superpowers of design."   Thanks for watching.
