Talk summary

In this talk, Natalie encourages youth to enjoy the process of finding a job that is right for them in the face of the fourth industrial revolution. She asks youth to be active participants in designing their life by exploring who they are, trying new things, and finding a mentor. Natalie discusses reskilling for the future work force and inspires youth to own that future. Natalie Chan is an educator, engineer, film producer, adventure-seeker, entrepreneur and a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum. Chan’s curiosity in education was sparked from the realization that there is a disconnect between the focus of schools and what the real world demands. After three years in the corporate world, she decided to dedicate her life to solving the gap between schooling and employment, helping people find their life path with passion and equipping them with the 21st Century skills to succeed.

After five years of research and experimentation in education, which includes teaching at a progressive school in Hong Kong and receiving a Master of Education from the Hong Kong University, Chan founded OWN Academy in 2016. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
