TED Circles on “Optimism” co-hosted with Marriott

⭕️ TED Circles celebrates 2 years! πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ

We couldn’t miss looking back to our last “Optimism TED Circle” which took place at the beautiful location of the Frankfurt Airport Marriott Hotel 🏨 πŸ™

In the frame of this wonderful co-hosted event we didn’t only get together in a cosy open space of the Frankfurt Airport Marriott Hotel to discuss ideas and experiences, eat delicious bites and enjoy our Circles live company after a long time. πŸ’‘ We got together to toast to our 2️⃣ years anniversary since the TED Circles format has been introduced to the world! 🌍

During the past 2 years of lockdowns, since the world turned upside down, TED❌Frankfurt has been hosting over 30 Circles in the virtual space. πŸ’» And we were so keen to finally bring these Circles to the in-person space and meet our local community. Planning this Circle for months, we wanted to create something special. βœ¨πŸ’«

Listening to and watching  Tali Sharot – The optimism bias TED Talk (https://lnkd.in/dffvuqVx )πŸŽ™, got the ball rolling for an insightful conversation, which developed organically amongst our attendees. The conversation made us reflect, go back to our childhoods and even question ourselves on how we define optimism. πŸ’¬πŸ’­ One of our key takeaways has been that optimism can be a choice of oneself at times, too. βœ‰οΈ

At this stage all that is left to say is a BIG THANK YOU to you and especially the Frankfurt Airport Marriott Hotel for hosting this inspiring, intimate and fun TED Circle and making this in-person 2 years celebration possible! 🎊🎈

We will continue with the TED Circles, be it virtually or in-person and look forward to your subscription on our newsletter. 😍Check out our TED Circle photo gallery to get a full impression from this circle! πŸ‘€
