What happens when employees give TED Talks? A look at TED@StateStreet, part of the TED Institute

Michael Metcalfe shares a shocking idea at TED@StateStreet: printing money to ensure we meet our goals for global aid.
“What corporate management team doesn’t say that they’re open to innovation?” says Michael Metcalfe, the senior managing director of State Street, the financial institution based in Boston.
In November, Metcalfe saw his company do something concrete about building a culture of openness among employees and sharing ideas across the organization. He found himself onstage in front of 350 of his colleagues at TED@StateStreet, delivering a talk on a daring idea: Governments should print money for aid to other nations. His talk, “We need money for aid, so let’s print it,” was published today on TED.com.

Michael Metcalfe: We need money for aid. So let’s print it.

Metcalfe was one of 12 State Street employees, from all levels of the company, who delivered talks at TED@StateStreet, one of our TED Institute events, a TED-curated program that unlocks good ideas from inside our partner organizations. At TED@StateStreet, themed “Forces of Change,” graphic designer Joe Kowan serenaded the audience and shared his foolproof method for beating stage fright.
