LIFT France FING Inspires
LIFT France is over. Wow...it was a two day waterfall of great ideas. I don't think it could have happened in Paris. That's because many of the speakers were in town for a few days not just a couple of hours, and took the time to answer questions and socialise. That is what's wrong with so many of the TED clones - they are a collection of people who just want to perform. LIFT France really produce the sessions so they have a coherent story. Full of practical examples of people are doing great things. Made three hours of great interviews. Will build them into some of the sessions I am organising in Africa and also share on the video vault.
I also like the fact that people are approachable. Genuine interest is matched by a genuine willingness to share.
And what a place to sit, relax and chat. Mmmmm...
