George’s Talk

What Can a Rubik’s Cube Teach You About Life?

Watching George solve a Rubik’s Cube literally beggars belief. It’s impossibly fast. In fact, he holds multiple records and championships in pursuing his craft.

George joins us at TEDxNewcastle to show us his wizardry and give us some insight into how he can solve such a complex puzzle in seconds. He’ll also describe his journey into this unlikely occupation, the connection he’s made into a global community of ‘supersolvers’ and what he feels he’s taken away from it all so far at the young age of 21.
