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. TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations. Each week we pick a favourite and publish it on a Tuesday because we like how “TED Talk Tuesday” sounds. This week’s talk was by Blake Dyason

If we really want to see change we need to start speaking up.
We have witnessed the power of speaking up, we have seen Jacob Zuma fall off his power tower, we joined hands in the #MeToo campaign that has led to women speaking out and holding abusive men accountable, we have seen big companies collapse because South Africans have had enough with corruption.

But all these campaigns and movements start with one person or small group or a company and only once the momentum pics up does everyone join. The domino effect.

Its not always easy to speak up but imagine what we can achieve in 2019 if we do.
Listen to Luvvie Ajayi TED Talk about being the first domino to fall.
