TED Talk that has become a global viral sensation, has seen one speaker have their inspirational talk translated into a staggering 26 languages. Thomas K Girard, who recently received his fifth Emerging Scholar Award gave a two-minute talk at the thirteenth International Conference on The Arts in Society at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. The talk was so inspiring and impressive it made people hairs stand up on their neck. The talk “How To Feel At Home In The Airport” has become one of the most watched Ted Talks of 2020.
Thomas who has become one of the most inspiring speakers of our generation took people on a journey they will never forget. A journey through the streets of Mumbai and Barcelona, to only reflect on the things that he missed, and the familiar of the airport. The talk which gained laughter, also sent the room quiet as those in attendance found themselves going on that journey and thinking about their own journey.
There are not many speakers around that can silence a room and grab the audience in their hand and take them on a journey of their choosing, but that is exactly what Thomas Girard did. He has this unique talent to make people listen and connect with them in a way that many other people can’t His two-minute talk was all that was needed. On paper what he wanted to achieve would seem impossible in a two-minute talk. In reality, a speaker not of his ability would take half an hour to get their message across, but two minutes is all Thomas needed.
