200 Stage

What is the purpose of a stage? To entertain? To inform? To promote? Bruno Giussani is the curator of Ideas and the European director of TED! It’s an honour to have Bruno in the Chineasy studio because he was one of the original people to see potential in Chineasy and invite ShaoLan to the TED stage some years ago. Bruno talks about how at TED, they look to find people with good ideas from all over the world and give them a stage to accelerate the development of their ideas. He also shares some expert advice on how to avoid giving a mediocre talk and really communicate in the best way possible!

In Chinese, 舞台 is the word for “stage.” The first character,  means “to dance” and  means “platform.” The platform with dancers is the “stage.”
