Being the archetypal ‘good girl’, Liz spent the first thirty years of her life working hard, playing the game and climbing the corporate ladder. One day the realisation hit her that she liked neither the view above nor below her on that ladder and she started to make steps to design the life she wanted, not the one that others told her she should want. Liz realised that much of her life was dominated by things she thought she ‘should’ do rather than all the things she wanted to do. So, she left the career she had worked hard to build and sought to create a more colourful life.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
