How to Kill a Dream

Bel Pesce is a successful Brasilian entrepeneur, who made her fortune in Silicon Valley before returning home.

In this short but evocative TED talk, Bel challenges us all to look again at the reasons why our dreams sometimes fail to come to fruition. Bel goes on to explain five common causes that are very easy to understand, but perhaps a little more challenging to address.

All of Bel’s suggestions are relevant to clubs and other organisations, too. How often, for instance, do we focus on our club goals or some other organisational construct, rather than ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the journey? If people are enjoying an experience, they’re much more likely to commit and continue.

Enjoy Bel’s talk……
