Who doesn’t love a TED Talk? It’s been called “the ultimate brain spa.”

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Today, TED talks have been viewed over a billion times online.

Delivering a TEDx talk with Neale Bayly

TEDx Charlotte is organized by a local team of volunteers. I’m over the moon to be presenting a TEDx talk with my buddy Neale Bayly this Friday, February 21 in Charlotte. This TEDx event’s theme is Unexpected: Converging Contradictions.

Neale and I will talk about “Chance Encounters that Changed Our Lives.”

About Neale Bayly

Neale is a Philanthropic Adventure Motorcyclist. If you are at all connected to motorcycling, you’ve seen Neale’s work with America’s top motorcycle magazines and web sites. Assignments send him all over the world to ride, test and report back on the best that a two-wheeled lifestyle offers. Neale and I teamed up to cover the  2012 and 2013 GS Trophy trials at the BMW Performance Center in Greenville, SC. Neale shoots the pictures, I write the stories.

His 2013 reality series “Neale Bayly Rides” made its debut on Speed Channel (now Fox Sports). The TV series showed Neale’s philanthropic side to the world. It documented a charity ride that he captained through the wilds of Peru, which culminated at a remote mountain orphanage which his charity, Wellspring International Outreach, supports. Like me, Neale lives in Charlotte, NC. He is a devoted father to his two sons, Luke and Patrick.
