We often discuss people after they have passed away at their funerals and memorials. Here, Darren Maclean talks of what he learned about life officiating over 1000 funerals - what he learned about other people's lives and the choices they made in how to live them. Direct and to the point, he reminds us to make careful choices about how we spend each precious moment.

Darren Maclean is a passionate thinker, intellectual, and humorist with a unique perspective on trending ideas. His hard-hitting keynotes are hugely informative and get audiences thinking, laughing (and sometimes crying) their way to change.

A historian by training who graduated from Edinburgh University, Darren is a funny and well-informed speaker who founded an alternative church in Toronto, Canada. He is well known for his innovative approach in communicating to people who feel excluded from traditional forms of religion.

He is also the headline writer for one of America’s top 100 Internet companies, which regularly generates 250 million views a month.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
