TED TALK TUESDAY #276 Unleash your bravery

TED continues to spread ideas and help us all be better critical thinkers. Watching, listening and talking about TED Talks is a popular pastime for many in the CN&CO community. We visit TED.com regularly to clear our heads, have a laugh, learn or get inspired. TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations and business opportunities. Each week we pick a favourite and publish it on a Tuesday, because we like how “TED Talk Tuesday” sounds. It’s also a way that the CN&CO team play their part in spreading ideas and helping to make the world a better place.

This week’s TED Talk was chosen by Gianluca.

As the year draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on the power of my own internal drive, leading me to share this powerful TED Talk by Nakia Gelin.

“What if we all were self-motivated?” Gelin asks.

Imagine a world where our innate courage propels us forward, without leaning on others for validation or strength. When we are fueled by self-motivation, our bravery becomes our beacon, resilient through every challenge.

It is this unwavering spirit, essential for success, that we should and MUST employ.

As we set our sights on the horizon of 2024, let’s step into the new year with self-motivation as our compass, journeying onward with joy and determination.


Gianluca brings a touch of Italian flair to everything he does. His eye for detail, superior organisational skills and rare ability to nag relentlessly (in the nicest possible way) help to keep the team on track and on target. Say good things to him about Juventus and you’ll have a friend for life.
