This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Dr. John Bandler discusses experiences in his life in relation to missed opportunities and lack of preparation. Using the example of emergency response to natural disaster, how prepared are governments to respond?

Professor Emeritus John Bandler studied at Imperial College London, founded Optimization Systems Associates Inc., sold it to Hewlett-Packard, and is now President of Bandler Corporation.

He has published more than 480 technical papers. He is a Fellow of several societies, including the IEEE, the Royal Society of Canada, and the Canadian Academy of Engineering.

He holds a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and IEEE Canada’s McNaughton Gold Medal, and also the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society’s Application and Career Awards—both awarded to a Canadian for the first time.

His fiction includes a novel, a screenplay and nine stage plays, three of which have been performed—one he directed himself. See www.bandler.com and watch out at the Hamilton Fringe Festival in July, 2014: “The Trial of Naomi Verne.”

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)
