Jia Jiang – TED Talk
Jia Jiang: World Domination Summit Presentation
Lets Get Rejected

2 Programs By This Presenter

When entrepreneur Jia Jiang left corporate life to build his dream company, he had no idea it also meant facing crushing rejection. To overcome his fear and pain, he decided to fully embrace rejection by making crazy requests for 100 days. To his surprise, the world opened up to him. Jiang flew a plane, taught a college class and befriended a billionaire. In the meantime, he made a viral video blog that got more than six million views on YouTube, and elevated a well-known company’s stock by 29 percent. This presentation will show the humorous and insightful learning and truth about rejection and fear Jiang has discovered, and their practical applications in life and business.

Jia Jiang always believed that leadership came from power and position, and that racial differences were an insurmountable barrier among all people. However, through social media, he discovered that leadership is all about authenticity, empathy and influence. Jiang believes that everyone has the ability to develop effective leadership qualities by confronting their fears and connecting with others on a level deeper than those fostered by our differences in culture and appearance.
