Liz Ngonzi '98 founded Amazing Taste, LLC, a boutique consulting firm that leverages her international rolodex and extensive branding and teaching experience to facilitate relationships between nonprofit organizations, corporations, the media, and funders to meet their mutually beneficial strategic objectives through marketing and fundraising campaigns, along with educational activities.

At TEDxCornellU, November 17, 2013, Ngonzi shares her journey to finding greater meaning in life. She takes you from the conundrum of success, lots of resume accomplishments from an Ivy League school, to Fortune 100 jobs, to a top notch client roster, to honors and awards, but feeling deeply something big was missing. It took three months living in a blue tent at an Ashram to find what it was. Share the journey, discover what she came to know and see how she hopes it will inspire you to find your own path to balance and joy.

The Center for Transformative Action is proud to have organized this TEDx event, which celebrated the many ways in which knowledge is put to work in pursuit of economic vitality, ecological sustainability, and social well-being. Co-sponsored by Entrepreneurship@Cornell; Cornell's Engaged Learning + Research; Cornell's College of Architecture, Art and Planning; the Johnson School of Management's Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute; the Iscol Family Program for Leadership in Public Service; Cornell's Global Health Program and departments of Government, Development Sociology, and Art; the Alternatives Federal Credit Union; and GreenStar Cooperative Market.
