When I saw TEDx Auckland 2014 announced I really wanted to go but was a bit torn. I loved the 2013 event but it meant a precious day of weekend gone. Weekends were crucial as I was trying to get fit for a rather demanding cycle tour in the Himalayas.
The TEDx 2014 theme was ‘Ascending’:
Ascending is about individuals and society rising to a higher level of consciousness.
Ascending is about finding the positives in any situation and building on them to make our lives, community, business and planet better.
As it turned out, the day spent at TEDx may have been the most valuable trip preparation I ever did thanks to Mike Allsop!

Bullet points in italics are unedited notes I took during the day using OneNote on my Nokia Lumia 1520 phone. I also used it for all the photos and John Boone session video clip.
The gathering crowds, the Aotea Centre was a near sell-out!
Ben Boyce decides he want to be… A rock star, stuntman, superstar actor, rapper or whatever then goes & interviews real ones to find out how. These are the highlights from WANNA-Ben, the full interviews are on his WANNA-BenTV YouTube Channel
I saw The Blue Bike on Sky NZ (Living Channel) and loved it. I’m a recreational cyclist who can totally relate to struggling up mountains (South Island NZ in my case) but thought the story was amazing and nicely captured. Although not currently listed for another screening they often repeat programmes & I recommend keeping an eye out for it.
