Very few people haven't heard of TED Talks these days.
Thousands of TED Talks can be found online, on a wide range of subjects from technology to education to inspiration.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Communities around the world host TEDx events to share the ideas and speakers that are important to them.
I’m SUPER excited that on Sunday I’ll be a speaker at our local TEDx event. Our event is called Imagine→Ignite. From the website:
On 11/17/13, the inaugural [email protected] event, “Imagine→Ignite,” kicks off, bringing together young thinkers, inspiring speakers, innovative musicians and performers, and Humboldt County’s passionate visionaries to celebrate our unique sense of place, and each individual’s Ignited life. This Youth Event comes one year after the very successful and well received TEDxEureka event.
My talk is called Your Unknown Impact and seeks to remind viewers that those seemingly inconsequential interactions you have with people can sometimes have long-lasting impacts that you often never find out about.
If you’re just kickin’ it online on Sunday, the event will be live-streamed here. I’ll be doing my talk at around 3:30 Pacific time. Of course once I have a link, I’ll post it.
I do a lot of public speaking, but I can honestly say I’ve never prepared more for anything in my life. :) I’m very much looking forward to this and beyond honored to be a part of it.
