I’m so excited to finally be able to share this news with everyone, considering how long it’s been sitting in my email inbox. Following my talk at TEDLagos, I’ve been invited to speak at TED Global 2017 !
The program is so impressive that I’m a bit awed, myself. I’m scheduled to speak on Aug. 30th (same day as urban development thought leader Robert Neuwirth!), and sandwiched between literary giants like Nnedi Okorafor and Bibi Bakare-Yusuf, serial entrepreneur Ndidi Nwuneli, and the Presidents of Mauritius and Rwanda, Ameenah Gurib-Fakeem and Paul Kagame.
Needless to say, I’ve been working my socks off crafting a talk worth listening to, and I can’t wait to share it with the world. I’m grateful to Kelly Stoetzel, Emeka Okafor and Chris Andersen, among others on the TED team, for all the helpful advice and support so far.
Arusha, here I come! #TimehinTakesTED
