Love TED Talks? Here are five sites with talks that are just as good.

In the course of my work creating the For The Interested newsletter every week, I’ve discovered a lot of great sources of inspiring content.

While everybody knows about TED Talks, I thought I’d share five other sites that feature talks every bit as good as what you find at TED.


Launched in 2008 by Tina Roth Eisenberg, Creative Mornings has grown to be an incredible collection of presentations from creative professional for creative professionals that take place all around the world and are archived online for further accessibility.

Here’s one of their better talks, from Casey Gerald:

An offshoot of Behance and founded by Scott Belsky, 99u is a website and conference designed to help people make their ideas happen.

Here’s an example from Brene Brown:

Here’s an example from Tony Hsieh:


An inbound marketing software platform, Hubspot is home to some of the best marketing-related talks online.

Here’s an example from Seth Godin:

Bonus Recommendation: FOR THE INTERESTED

I’m completely biased since it’s my newsletter, but if you enjoy these talks then you might want to check out the For The Interested newsletter, where each week I share ideas similar to the ones featured in this post.
