TEDxHKUST - Peter Schindler - Giving Chance a Chance

Peter gives the customs officials a hard time when he crosses a border by car. It all started when he was a lot younger and raced cars in Europe -- Formula 2, Formula 3, Formula Super-V and Renault Elf.He claims his passion for driving was put on hold when he entered the 'dark years' of his life during which he studied I.T. at M.I.T. and business at INSEAD. Although painfully, he even heaved himself up to become an associate partner in Accenture's China practice. But he soon realized it was time to move on and relive his passion. And then came along, numerous wild road adventures and troubles with cops.Having driven over the years a million-plus kilometers on roads in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, and loving every moment of it, Peter now quenches his thirst for driving by taking to the roads of China. And chances are, he is carrying a driving license of your country of choice.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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
