TEDxCalgary - Mark Blundell - Profit from Misfortune

In this humorous story of the trials and tribulations of custom motorcycle making, Mark Blundell gives everyone a lesson on the benefits of profiting from misfortune. Blundell's approach to life is to study, experiment and figure things out. His playground is the community at T.J.'S CYCLE in Calgary. Here he builds custom motorbikes using his background as a machinist. He applies human ingenuity and systems thinking that goes beyond textbook studies; think Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. 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)
