TED Review: Ernesto Sirolli – Want to help someone? Shut up and listen!

I found myself lucky tonight and got to watch Dr. Ernesto Sirolli speaking at a TED Conference. He started his presentation by familiarizing the audience with the roots of his adventure, being a young man, working for an italian NGO in Zambia-Africa. Clean, a hippos and tomatoes agricultural anecdote, accent, charm and laughter. Great opening…

I encourage you to watch all 17:10 minutes of his presentation. He is worthwhile.

In the video, Dr. Sirolli shares a side topic secret. Entrepreneurs, you need to remember the next four lines:

  1. Fantastic Product
  2. Fantastic Marketing
  3. Financial management (taking care of the money)
  4. There is not a single person in the world that can do all three F’s alone. You need a team.

Dr. Ernesto Sirolli is the Founder of the Sirolli Institute, an international nonprofit organization that teaches community leaders how to establish and maintain Enterprise Facilitation projects in their community.
