The first TEDxOakville conference will be held Friday October 1, 2010 at MacDonald-Heaslip Hall, Sheridan College and it will follow the TED form and spirit.
The theme of TEDxOakville 2010 is “Can an individual in Oakville really make a difference and change the world”.
Nominations for speakers are now open and will close on Tuesday, August 24th.
Speakers at TEDx events – some of the world’s most fascinating, innovative and influential individuals – are challenged to give “the talk of their life” in 18 minutes or less. Attendees are as exceptional as the speakers. Sharing happens from the stage or in the lounge. It’s the conversation that will change your life. TEDx is a new extension initiative of the TED organization.
We are also hosting a monthly TEDTalk Tuesday on the second Tuesday of the month where we view one or two TEDTalks to be followed by discussion and networking.
