TED Talks - Lunch and Learn

A series of topical lunchtime TED Talks and conversation, open to all managers at the University

We are pleased to launch a new series of TED Talk Lunch and Learn sessions. 

These talks are open to all managers at the University but are primarily there to support the alumni of the Edinburgh Manager Programme. We hope they will spark new connections and build a network of peers who can support one another and improve wellbeing. Learning together can be a great way of building those relationships.

The sessions are designed to challenge and provoke new thinking across a variety of different management topics. Using the TED talks as a launchpad for conversation, you will have the opportunity to discuss some of the common challenges you are experiencing and explore with each other creative solutions which could inspire change.  

The TED talk sessions are one hour (online), facilitated by the Talent and Development team. As the title would indicate, feel free to bring your lunch along. We will start by watching the TED talk together, invite your reflections and questions and then have what we hope will be a lively discussion!

Please sign up using the booking links below, and we look forward to seeing you there.
