An Ounce of Consciousness Is Worth a Ton of Creativity | Peter D’Almeida | TEDxColombo

Subscribe to Our Channel

Any successful action can only start with a clear identification of the problem at hand. This, Peter says, is what is missing in society. He emphasized that nothing operates without the participation of the masses. A collective consciousness. Peter D’Almeida is the Managing Director and Chief Executive of N*able, a technology services company which today employs over 180 people. With a career that spans nearly three decades in a series of industries both locally and abroad- he was also the CEO of Millennium ESP.

Alongside IT, and his involvement with the labour rights movement in the 1980s, Peter has had a parallel career in the Arts, as an actor and a director. He has starred in plays, television dramas and films.

Today, Peter has gained traction as a public speaker for a variety of forums across the education, business and technology sectors, focusing on the importance of creativity and the need to push past the narrow boundaries that confine our personal, professional and political lives. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
