Having attended last week TEDx StPeterPort, whose aim was to inspire, engage and catalyse us, I can certainly say they hit the spot. The event held at Beau Sejour for almost 400 people was the most amazing day. Speakers from Guernsey, the UK, US and Denmark, gave talks on positive and innovative steps to improving quality of life on the island. People spoke about how they had overcome personal issues and managed to get their lives back on track, they spoke about how to make their own island sustainable and, the opportunity to become more democratic in our countries by use of the internet to name a few topics.
One of things that I loved was the Guernsey people who attended, people who care about their island, its future and how we can make it better. It was a thought provoking inspirational day and I enjoyed every moment of it. If we are lucky enough to have it run again on Guernsey I would definitely go and take our team from the Bridge Dental Clinic. In our busy working lives we get to bogged down with keeping on top of everything and keeping up to date with relevant CPD. To open our eyes and see other ways of improving our working lives and our island lives was just amazing. Anne
