TED, the organization behind those viral TED Talks, has partnered with Clubhouse to bring TED speakers to live social audio applications.
The first program, “Thank you for A** Off”, will be launched today with writer and TED speaker AJ Jacobs. He once said that he would like to thank everyone who participated in making morning coffee, and in the following year Spent his life, “The Hollywood Reporter” reported, using the Bible as literally as possible.
Clubhouse founder and former music industry executive Mir Harris will join him. The two will invite guests and other Clubhouse members to express their gratitude to the unsung heroes in life, and interact with the audience to answer questions.
The two companies said that other programs and TED speakers participating in the club partnership will be announced later.
The partnership between the club and TED is imminent, especially since the club hired Kelly Stoetzel, the former head of TED conference, in May to oversee the thought leadership program.
“For nearly four decades, TED has brought the world’s most outstanding ideas, imagination and voices to audiences,” Stutzer said in a statement.
Stoetzel added: “This partnership will enable these ideas to have a dialogue with the millions of creators who make up the Clubhouse community.”
“TED’s mission has always been to share ideas and promote discussions around them,” said Carla Zanoni, TED’s director of audience development.
“When ideas and people come together to participate and debate, this is when the real impact occurs,” Zanoni added.
