DIANA KANDER TO TALK @ TEDxKC!!!



Biz speak and tech talk isn't really our bag @ TKC because most of it simply comes down to a glorified sales pitch and 99% of all paid apps are really nothing more than glorified RSS feeds for the unwashed masses.

However . . .

RIGHT NOW WE CELEBRATE A KANSAS CITY POLITICAL POWER BROKER TAKING THE STAGE AT THE UPCOMING KANSAS CITY TED TECH CONFERENCE!!!

TEDxKC announces presenters; tickets on sale Tuesday

Some interesting stuff but here's something of interest to local political denizens . . . Here's who should be the featured speaker . . .

Diana Kander, a Kauffman Foundation senior fellow. She will talk about how business schools’ approach to teaching entrepreneurial skills may do more harm than good.  

Sounds like a lot of that is based on her book that we profiled recently . . .

Let's remind Kansas City residents that Ms. Kander's accomplishments include . . .

- Installing Mayor Sly James into power despite his nearly complete lack of community involvement before he burst on the civic stage.

- In retrospect, I kinda like her Joan Of Arc cover . . .

- Behind the scenes . . . She's a key player in the "Girl Power" movement that has overtaken Kansas City politics over the past few years.

Like it or not, she's the new lady political boss in Kansas City and her Ted talk might reveal how she did it.

Developing . . .

Completely irrelevant TED talk. As UMKC b-school has a dedicated entrepreneur building and focus a lot of resources on exactly what she is biatching about.


For my money, "entrepreneurship" is really just what B-schools are reduced to now that you don't get funneled into jobs like 15 years ago with an MBA. Nowadays it is about teaching go-back-to-school-types how to run a candle business out of their garage.
