To achieve the greatest success - both in business and in private life - you have to embrace the prospect of failure. Nobody sets out to fail at any task in which they undertake, success is the ultimate goal. The problem is that if you are afraid to fail, success is difficult to come by. Kevin Reese will be discussing his own personal failures and what he came to understand about himself and his relationships because of his past mistakes. This will be followed by an interactive discussion about how we are often wrong about what it means to be wrong.
When & Where
TEDxGreenville was the first independently organized TEDx event in South Carolina. It all started in 2010 when a diverse, passionate group of TED enthusiasts from around the community came together with the singular goal of bringing an educational and inspirational TED-like experience to Upstate residents.
The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.
At TEDxGreenville, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.
Now in its eighth year, the TEDxGreenville movement ignites passions and builds bridges like never before, while highlighting the incredible people and organizations that make the Upstate of South Carolina one of the best places to live on the planet. Yep, we said it. Drop the mic.
