The TEDxPalermo Talk by Diana Verde Nieto was held in the afternoon of April30th. The location due to bad weather was changed at the very last minute and studio427 was welcoming our day. Her speech is a thoughtful, ironic and wise guide to envisage the concept of Failure as a potential boost for every career in sustainable creativity.

In March 2011, The World Economic Forum nominated Diana as Young Global Leaders (YGLs).
