TED  Ideas worth spreadingsmall In 2006 the Sapling Foundation started curating TED (Technology Entertainment and Design), a global set of conferences seeking to spread innovative ideas. TED was founded in 1984 as a one-off event, and the conference was held annually and has been host to many of the brightest minds in the world, including Bill Gates, Larry Page, Richard Dawkins and many Nobel Prize winners.

Some of the best ideas spread by TED presenters have been related to marketing. These presentations help to put important marketing-related issues into context and uncover simple truths about persuasion and engagement. Whether you market your own small business or a Fortune 500 company, you can take away valuable information and insights from these great speakers.
