Say what you like about travel bloggers, when one of them gets a slot at a TED event they probably deserve at the very least a hearty congratulations.
Indeed, how many travel journos or, for that matter, travel industry folk have managed to get on-stage at one of the most high-profile events on the planet?
Keith Jenkins, he of VelvetEscape fame, spoke at a recent TEDx event at the Saxion University in the Netherlands.
The 16-minute slot (Passion, Empowerment, Social Media) covers his personal journey from an executive in the financial services industry to full-time travel blogger.
Worth a watch...
