TEDxCalgary – Michael Drew – Pendulum

TEDxCalgary – Michael Drew – Pendulum. Michael Drew takes us into the world of 40-year cycles in our society, and the implications of “quantum media” for the way in which we’ll need to think about leadership in the current cycle. Social Media Revolution video reproduced with the permission of Eric Qualman. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)


  • Incredible insights into your future. If you can get your head around how these “Social Cycles” come about, you’ll have a leg up on just about every situation happening around you.

  • There’s a lot of information here. I recommend watching this video at least twice. I think the speaker has put his finger on a fundamental trend in the future economy.

  • If you ever get the chance to see the one hour presentation, it’s great! Look all around, there is evidence of the civic cycle all over!

  • Great presentation! Really insightful! Powerful implications for business! Would love to see the full length presentation.

  • I saw Roy Williams at the Wizard Academy give this same presentation. Great stuff. We either pay attention and benefit from the insight, rebel and say it isn’t so being left behind, or stay asleep with life on autopilot not even realizing that there is a bigger game to play. I CHOOSE where I’m headed.

  • Like so many other patterns in nature it makes sense that there are social cycles. We need to step back and observe these trends and by doing so we can be one or two steps in front of the next “it” if we choose. Strap on those rocket shoes and keep your eyes open.

  • Good stuff.

    Google, youtube, twitter, and facebook Michael Drew if you really want to learn how awesome he is at marketing for your business through best seller campaigns!

  • There is no better time than now to embrace the shift in society and become authentic in your service and/or product offering. If you don’t , you will get left behind. Take this message to heart, especially if you have big goals or aspirations.

  • Michael I have seen you do this presentation twice in person. Your passion, wisdom and knowledge is inspiring and empowering.

    The presentation provided me with valuable information on how to create and maintain relationships and to be Real, Raw & Relevant.

    Thank you for all that you do!

  • nice video. i remember reading ‘the fourth turning’ et. al. 10 years ago when my mentor, Tony Robbins recommended it to me. This applies those understandings to commerce, which is really nice. Would have been great to have been audio quality (darn sound guys)… but that HD is NICE.

    I’ve really noticed a shift from pretense to reality in just the last 2 years. Lovin’ it and ready for more!

  • THIS is one of the most awesome videos I have every seen. Michael Drew articulates brilliantly what all of us have been sensing for the past few years. Social media is a fundamental shift in the way we communicate and it is changing the face of everything we do, especially the economy. I am so pleased to be a part of this swing of the pendulum.

  • Anytime I need to regroup, wrap my head around something I’m not getting yet or I need a kick in the pants. I watch this!

  • He uses just a few examples of everything that has happened in the last few decades to explain his point. It’s just too selective for me to believe the truth in this. He’s a good talker though.
