In a world buzzing about disruptive innovation and traditional work being turned upside down, what can any one individual do to successfully forge their own way despite all this unpredictability? Ted Graham shares how one fundamental choice can change your path.

Ted Graham is the Innovation leader at PwC where he helps to turn ideas into invoices. He is also founder of the South Core Innovation Hub, a collaborative group of innovation leaders from Toronto’s unique waterfront area.

Ted often speaks to audiences about the 5 things he learned about disruptive innovation as an UberX driver and how we can apply some of these lessons across a multitude of industries on the cusp of disruption. His firsthand account was initially released as a widely read LinkedIn influencer post, and is now part of his forthcoming book called “The Uber of Everything” to be released later this year.

Over the years Ted has enjoyed diverse pursuits in his spare time: scrabble champion, world ranked Rock Paper Scissors competitor and frequent participant at TED conferences (he married his wife in 2012 at an event dubbed TEDxErin).

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Feel free to watch the video below to learn more.
