Saul Griffith at TEDX

As I may have mentioned before, Saul Griffith is an inspiration. When asked to pick a single highlight from my book, he’s usually the one I go for. (Although I actually think my profile of him is one of the worst-written ones in the book. It was very, very hard to do him justice.)

I mean, how do you match someone who has created three inventions that could, completely without hyperbole, transform the world for the better, along with half a dozen other things most people would consider a lifetime peak, and does all this before he’s 40 while still being a lovely guy with time for his hobbies and a child?

It’s great to see he’s starting to reach a much wider audience than my thousand words were ever going to, including having a talk at TEDxSydney broadcast on Radio National.. This would be a lot better if you could see the slides, but catch it here.
