5 Inspirational TED Talks to Nurture Your Team


“What inspires you?” This seems like a simple question, but for anyone in the creative industry, it can be a loaded one. As PR and communications professionals, we are constantly asking clients where they found inspiration for a particular product, service or brand. The answer offers valuable insight into the creative mind and how it works. If you’re in PR, then you probably know that the answers range from inspiring in themselves to well, underwhelming.

Which brings up an intriguing question: Is the world divided between the uninspired and the inspired? Or, perhaps more to the point: Can you nurture inspiration?

At SSPR, we thrive on innovation. We strongly believe that inspiration can be nurtured and elevated within your environment. A creative and imaginative work environment allows ideas to grow, light bulbs to turn on and magical unicorns to run free. We strive to foster a company culture that instills curiosity such that questions are typically met with more questions, and the creative juices are so contagious that brainstorming becomes second nature.

Allow these TED Talks to nurture your team’s originality and inspire them with confidence, happiness, productivity, communication and human connection.
