TEDxAthens 2011 Talks – Matina Stevis
“Disruptive Information: Twitter and the Financial Markets”
By Matina Stevis
I write and talk in front of people all the time for my job, but always from the solitude of my desk or a TV studio. The experience of conveying what I thought was an idea worth spreading to an audience of over 1,000 people was just unique and humbling. As was the audience’s appetite to hear, absorb, question and understand. It was a true honour to be part of the 2011 TEDxAthens line-up, not least because it was held in my hometown and set the standard for a new type of world-class event that Greece deserves. The stellar fellow speakers in this year’s event are proof of how much TEDxAthens can achieve. I’ll be coming back.
