World-renowned TED speaker Dr Ernesto Sirolli will return to Dundee next month to inspire local business people.

The global practitioner of economic development and community advocate, will give a keynote speech at The Enterprise Conversation at Apex City Quay Hotel and Spa on Monday 10 June.

Sirolli’s Shut Up and Listen talk has gathered over three million views and his Sirolli Institute works with non-profits, governments, corporations and community leaders to harness communities’ power and facilitate their most creative entrepreneurs.

The event is organised and hosted by Cola 5by20 Dundee , a community empowerment model inspired by Dr Sirolli.

Sirolli said, “I am looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new entrepreneurs at Coca-Cola 5by20 Dundee. The future of every community lies in capturing the passion, energy and imagination of its own people.”

Launched in 2010, Coca-Cola 5by20 is an initiative in 60 countries for the economic empowerment of five million women by 2020. Dundee is the only city in Western Europe to host the programme, founded by Angie Foreman in 2017.
