Ariel Coro, a renown Latino Speaker and the most trusted tech expert for Latinos announced today a special motivational speech in commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month. His new speech, Resourcefulness is in our Roots, tells the story of how he grew up in Cuba during the “Período Especial” (Special Period) and how he and millions of others survived extreme poverty and scarcity of every possible kind through creativity and in his case, leveraging discarded technology to create and invent to be able to survive.
“This is an important month to reflect on our roots and history and that’s the purpose of the speech, to remind us of our resourcefulness in tough circumstances and to be able to apply the same skill set to get ahead in this country where resources, many of them technological, abound,” said Coro.
While in Cuba, Coro was one of the first people to build his own computer out of scrap parts and he even engineered a makeshift satellite dish from spare parts of Soviet-era radios to access channels forbidden by the government such as HBO and CNN. This resourcefulness allowed Coro to eventually move to the United States. Coro arrived in the U.S. with very little knowledge of English and a high school education but with the will to succeed and to continually educate himself.
This speech is a motivational and compelling story about the will to succeed and ingenuity under tough circumstances.
In this speech your Hispanic Heritage Month audience will discover:
- Incredible stories of ingenuity, survival, and success from Coro and many Latinos that have left their mark and inspire us to succeed every day even when our resources are limited.
- How to leverage the technology available to us in modern society to become more efficient to squeeze more productivity out of our day.
- Where to find inspiration and positive influence to continue inventing, creating and innovating.
- Unforgettable case studies of people and organizations that have used these principles to make their dent in the world.
- The best defense for when Artificial Intelligence comes for our jobs.
Coro engages the audience in his charismatic style through stimulating creativity exercises and will also share advice found in his book “El Salto – aprovecha las nuevas tecnologías y alcanza tu potencial” that have helped him surmount incredible obstacles as an immigrant and to work for prestigious organizations such as the Hubble Space Telescope and Cisco Systems.
Creativity and Innovation is more important than ever
We are living in tough times where technology is starting to turn on us in many ways. Artificial Intelligence is bound to replace many jobs and professions and it’s really up to us to leverage our creativity to survive. This creativity and innovation capability comes natural to all people but we forget how to tap into this precious resource.
