Wabi-sabi: The magnificence of imperfection: Cheryl Hunter at TEDxSantaMonica
Cheryl Hunter comes at her work with a multi-pronged approach, having merged seemingly-divergent careers around one idea: that a simple story, well told and presented, has tremendous potential to educate, entertain and impact people. Cheryl is an educator, author, speaker and high-performance coach who has personally coached and led personal development seminars for over 86,000 people since 1995. Simultaneously, Cheryl has had a career in the entertainment industry spanning two decades, working as a television and feature film writer/producer—under contract with HBO, Paramount Pictures, CBS and NBC. She's also written and acted in solo plays that she's toured nationally.
Cheryl shared a personal story about having been abducted as a teenager, and asked, "Why is it that we obsess over the things we can't change, rather than the things we can?"
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
