800px-robert_ballard_at_ted_2008If you ever doubted that an argument, delivered with passion, can win people around, take a look at the clip below on TED.

Robert Ballard persuaded Congress to give him a chunk of money to “go where no man has gone before”. And that’s not space. We’re talking the oceans, and he’s been on around 120 trips to explore the icy depths, discovering The Titanic wreck amongst other things.

Listen to his TED talk and feel the energy, the evangelistic enthusiasm he has for his subject – a great lesson for business people and educators alike.
