Over the last couple of weeks, the TED curators and founder of TED Chris Anderson have been running a new daily series of conversations with some of their community’s wisest minds. The initiative is called TED Connect.
The conversations have been fascinating. A wide range of topics with leading thinkers who are being called upon to share insights and ideas that will help us navigate this challenging time.
One of the interviews over the past week featured Ray Dalio who is Co-Chief Investment Officer & Co-Chairman of Bridgewater Associates, L.P. Ray shared views about the long-term economic impact of COVID-19.
We’re live with Marko Russiver who will be speaking about how we can hack our response to the coronavirus pandemic….Posted by TED on Wednesday, April 8, 2020
If you follow Ray on LinkedIn, you will see that he has posted a series of long form articles on the platform through the years. His latest post features chapter 1 of his book titled “The Changing World Order, where we are and where we are going”.

While we are on the topic of investing, have you seen how EasyEquities have created a donate for good functionality that allows investors to donate directly to the Solidarity Fund that has been set up to help fellow South Africans combat the impact of COVID-19? Read more about the feature here.
Watching TED Talks is a popular pastime at CN&CO. We visit TED.com regularly to clear our heads, have a laugh or get inspired. Our TED Talk Tuesday’s allow the CN&CO team to play their part on spreading ideas and helping to make the world a better place. Check out a few of the other TED Talk Tuesday picks HERE.
TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations. In the spirit of connection and learning from others we launched our own TED Circles in March 2020.
TED Circles is an open platform of small groups that engage in conversations about ideas.
The theme for the TED Circles get together in April is “A changing world”. We will showcase one talk linked to the theme and another talk that is linked to the current COVID-19 situation which is challenging the globe.
We are hosting on second get together on the 15th of April 2020, it’s free and we would love for you to join us.
We can learn so much from the world around us and from starting conversation with others. If you have watched a TED Talk recently, share it on social media and tag CN&CO. Let’s share in conversations and ideas while being physically distant.
