Watch out for the Scouts: Signe Bjørg Jensen at TEDxCopenhagen 2012 – YouTube

23 02 2013

I was hanging out at a training course for Scout Leaders today. Equipping them to deliver the Scouting programme to youth in the best and most effective way we can.

I was chatting away with Rovers and other members of the Scouts Canada family. One of the Rovers brought this TEDx talk from Copenhagen to my attention. The speaker’s from Denmark, and does a great job of saying what we’re all about.

If you think you already know what Scouts is about, or perhaps if you don’t – invest 6:29 mins and see how close you were. Signe Bjørg Jensen does an amazing job – as indeed most Scout volunteers around the world do.

“We want to make children the most awesome adults of the future – so watch out for the Scouts!”

Couldn’t have said it better if I tried.

Another humbling observation: Signe is Danish. Her audience is Danish. She gives the presentation in English, makes quite subtle jokes… and the audience laugh! How many of us could do that in Danish?!
