Ben Rattray: How TED Talks Inspire People To Change The World
"These insights [in the TED Talks] inform our work at Change.org, helping our team build the tools that will be most effective in empowering people to create the change they want to see," he says. In the interview, Rattray also lists 5 of his favorite TED Talks that he says, "reveal some unrecognized challenges and the opportunity for impact we all have." As the CEO of Change.org, Rattray has created an innovate platform for people who want to make a difference in the world but don't know where to start. The website allows people to sign petitions—or make their own—to help draw attention to prominent issues. In his talks, he also explains the importance of acting on your beliefs. Social media and the Internet have provided an invaluable outlet for people to come together and make a difference in the world, he explains, and he helps inspire audiences to take their passion and turn it into positive action.
