In a new and unfamiliar place, talking to people (much less making friends) can seem an insurmountable task. Author and educator Kio Stark is a long-time advocate of speaking to strangers.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing our pick for CAs who work and live abroad or are thinking of making the change.

TED Talks feature some of the best and brightest speakers from the worlds of business, academia and beyond. First up, Kio tells us how and why to push through our own discomfort and initiate connections, no matter how brief.
