Last November, we shared our takeaways from TEDx Cambridge, a one-day event featuring 30+ speakers and lots of Ideas Worth Spreading (TED’s mission). The theme for this particular gathering was “Thrive.” How can we as individuals – and communities – not just survive but thrive?
One of the speakers to take a crack at that question was PatientsLikeMe Co-Founder and President Ben Heywood, who talked about the story behind PatientsLikeMe. In addition to sharing how it all began with his brother Stephen’s diagnosis with ALS, and what PatientsLikeMe is trying to do (“a revolution of openness”), Ben focused on how we can thrive as a company against big expectations – both external and internal.
Tune in to the video below to find out just that. Congrats to Ben on an inspiring talk – not to mention his standing ovation!
