Julie Summers is an author, historian and broadcaster with wide experience of writing about and interviewing people who have experienced extreme situations. She has worked with mountaineers who have climbed and returned from the world's highest peaks, and written about those who have not. She has interviewed men who worked on the Death Railway in Thailand as prisoners of the Japanese in the Second World War and with people who have been affected by war in childhood. Her interest is in how people cope with these experiences once they return to everyday life. A compassionate interviewer and practiced listener, Julie inspires confidence in her interviewees and has teased out some of the most extraordinary stories of survival and inner strength from men, women and children.Post production done by!/CassiusClaysonAbout TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn 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.
