Original Thinkers Presents Zenia Tata!

Original Thinkers Presents Zenia Tata!

Telluride-based Original Thinkers is a fresh and thoughtful ideas festival regularly scheduled for September 30 – October 3, 2021, in Telluride. The weekend generally features 10 programs, each built around a particular idea explored through a compelling mix of speakers, films, performance, and art. The program typically delves into the human condition by focusing on the intersection of ideas and individual stories.

As Original Thinkers founder and ringleader David Holbrooke has said about the event he founded: “There are deep and universal truths in our own lives that we know will resonate with anyone and when we find those stories and showcase them, they provide an indelible experience for an audience.”

Go here to watch Zenia Tata  who joins David in a conversation about the X-Prize and her “moonshots,” which work to create radical change by incentivizing innovation.

The following is a note from David. 

Dear Original Thinkers –

Zenia Tata was one of the last guests we added to our lineup for 2020 and one of the most memorable. We were connected by a mutual friend who knew that our interests and endeavors would align and he was right as Zenia’s energy, passion and deep intellect was clear from that first meeting on Zoom.

Zenia works with X-Prize as Chief Impact Officer, focusing on finding what she calls “moonshots,” which work to create radical change by incentivizing innovation through cash prizes.

In this talk, Zenia told me she had been exploring something she calls “Chaos Pilots,” which intrigued me since that sounds like it aligns with original thinking and, of course, it does.
