TEDx speech – by Patrick Burke

The Legacy of Our Generation


15 Mar 2016

Our generation has chased economic growth at the expense of our values, now is our generation’s chance to turn the tide.

Patrick Burke worked in finance. In 2008 he had an epiphany: turn your passion into your job. So he started working with classic cars and yachts. He is now Managing Director of the Historic Endurance Rallying Organisation (HERO) – a platform for those who share his enthusiasm. In the process of building the business, he discovered something much more important: his generation’s responsibility to link its past and future. Cars became a metaphor for life. He explains what this means, and how it can affect us all.
