In this talk, Bruce McIntyre shows how a new model of education is helping kids tap into the 90% of our brain we don't use. Bruce McIntyre started Macpac, which became one of New Zealand's early export success stories, at age 19 in 1973. Today, its innovative, high quality products can be found in shops and mountains around Australia, UK, Europe, Scandinavia, USA, Japan, and Asia. In the late 1980s, disullusioned with traditional business culture, Bruce instigated a prolonged cultural and organisational reform project that transformed the workplace into an open, highly participative, team-based, human-oriented environment. Currently, Bruce is working on education reform, developing a model school with the intention of unleashing the innate, holistic potential of every student. About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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.)
