Victoria Lewis, one of Spectrum’s advisers in the South of France and Paris, was recently nominated to participate at a TED event (www.ted.com) in Grenoble.
“It was an honor and a privilege to be nominated as a Speaker by TED, especially when I discovered one of the other speakers was a Nobel Prize winner! I was asked to speak about the global pension situation and the problems faced today by those people wishing to retire early.”
“TED imposes strict rules on the talk format and each presenter must speaker for 18 minutes. There was an international audience of 300 people, many of whom were executives from international companies, entrepreneurs, scientists and university undergraduates. Fortunately, there was time during the event to answer specific questions from the audience and it was clear that most people had a real interest in improving their financial well-being. “
