I had the pleasure of listening and meeting Annie Griffiths of National Geographic last year. During her speech, I was really captivated on how she related to people, how she can communicate across cultures and how she can have people open up to her. It was also admirable that she and her husband made it possible for them to raise a family while travelling on assignments. The video here is the same speech that I happen to listen to last year. If you are also interested, the stories of the pictures goes in depth in her book A Camera, Two Kids and a Camel.
