TED is a not-for-profit that aims to promote ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’. It’s grown from a conference in the U.S. to a network of worldwide events showcasing the best speakers and thinkers. From April to June 2012 they’ve staged a global talent search across 6 continents for Ted 2013 ‘The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.’ London held its talent search on April 22nd at the British Library and Eleanor Longden gave a fantastic talk on ‘Learning from the voices in my head.’
This was the first time somebody had spoken about the experience of voice hearing and is a real opportunity to raise awareness internationally. Although she only had 6 minutes Eleanor gave a powerful and moving testimony and you can watch it here:
