Thank you very much. So it appears that I make an appearance at TEDxHarker every 10 years or so. So I hope I can make one more.
A little bit about my background. I, as you heard, I worked for Apple. I was Apple’s chief evangelist. I’m currently Canva’s chief evangelist. Hopefully some of you may use Canva.
And I’m also the host of this Remarkable People podcast. And I have interviewed about 160 people. And you develop some pattern recognition of what makes people remarkable. And it’s not obvious from the outside looking in when you see someone like Neil deGrasse Tyson or Jane Goodall, you know, what made them remarkable.
So this presentation is my analysis of what made people like that remarkable. And I hope that this will help you become remarkable too. So this is about how to be remarkable. And these are unseen, unexpected, maybe even hidden and counterintuitive things that I learn about why people become remarkable.
