Ernesto Sirolli: Want to help someone? Shut up and listen! e technology in the aid of farmers



When most well-intentioned aid workers hear of a problem they think they can fix, they go to work. This, Ernesto Sirolli suggests, is naïve. In this funny and impassioned talk, he proposes that the first step is to listen to the people you’re trying to help, and tap into their own entrepreneurial spirit. His advice on what works will help any entrepreneur.

  1. I am so THANKFUL I got to see this! I assumed it would be boring and hard to follow, BUT he made it so FUN and ENJOYABLE! I laughed way too much and heard a great story, while "learning". THANK YOU!

  2. If You Summarise this in a few points:-
    1) Communication- Enforcing People to buy Solution to a Problem without gathering Insights of them can lead to a Complete Failure.
    2) Planning can be the worst step you can take for a Start up if Adaptation is not met with time. Specifically in a Growing Entrepreneurial Econonmy.
    3) Confidentiality and Dedication to approach People with Ideas is a must.
    And To make them know the 3 steps:
    1) Product has to Be Fascinating.
    2) So must be the Marketing.
    3) Financial Management is a must.
    4) You always need a Good Team.
