ABOUT GET INSPIRED TALKS

CONTEXT

We live in a time of change ripe with possibilities. A time when our biggest challenges are our greatest opportunities. Now is the time for us to think differently and act bravely. What would cause us to do so? Every meaningful element of human progress has happened because humans have inspired each other to critically examine the status quo, reframe our thoughts and take action that turns ideas into reality. One highly effective medium for triggering this sequence is a thoughtfully scripted and impactfully delivered short talk. Welcome to Get Inspired Talks Inc. (“GI Talks”).

MISSION

The mission of GI Talks is to help people, communities and humanity by using high-impact, short talks to inform and inspire large, live audiences to think differently and act bravely. These talks are then formatted into videos and e-books to reach, inspire and activate global audiences.

VISION

GI Talks plans to produce at least 2 live events annually in each of 400 cities by 2030. At each event we’ll showcase 12 problems and provide credible authorities with fresh solutions to address those problems. Their 9,600 ideas will each be heard 100,000 times to inspire nearly 1 billion actions that help humanity.

The first live GI Talks event took place on October 20, 2018 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. 10 credible authorities shared their fresh ideas. The second GI Talks live event takes place on October 19, 2019 in the Playhouse Theatre. GI Talks expects its live audiences to be dwarfed by online (video and e-book) audiences.
