He will share insights he has gained from 15 years of work with traditional weavers in remote communities across Indonesia. He started out to create a model of how a profitable business can have a social mission, and now works with over 1,000 weavers and their families in 36 cooperatives on 11 islands.Born in the UK and trained as a mathematician, William has lived most of his life in Asia, first in Japan, now in Indonesia. He is the author of the book A Little Bit One O'clock: Living with a Balinese Family.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.
