A great cause, a great speaker

The TED conference has been making its speakers available for viewing by the masses (e.g., me), and this talk by Majorca Carter about greening the South Bronx is worth forwarding on. Guy Kawasaki posts about her first, so apologies to anyone who reads Guy before me (and a questioning look for anyone who doesn’t…).

Majorca’s talk is riveting for her passion, commitment, and perfect mix of polish and promise. This is must-see TV for anyone with a cause. Study it, mimic it, channel its spirit into your own projects.

Guy’s comments on her speaking style were also informative–about both her and Guy. Great speakers like Guy are clearly great students of speeches, but it’s not easy to see them in action. Now TED’s collection offers a great set of training tapes for the rest of us.
