Any of you that know me know I’m a huge TED Fan. I regularly spend my morning workouts on the treadmill watching the latest TED videos, and searching out the less watched ones for inspiration and ideas. Heaven forbid should you be with me after I’ve seen something truly inspiring – you will be inundated with my summary of the presenter and a recap of every second of the video.
So what is TED? TED stands for “Technology, Entertainment and Design” and has been around since 1984. According to the TEDx Stanley Park Guide, “TED is now an annual conference that brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas in diverse disciplines including technology, science, entertainment, motivation, social issues, health and wellness, entrepreneurship and the economy.”
The whole theme of TED is “Ideas worth spreading” and when I heard about TEDx Stanley Park – I knew I wanted to be there. I quickly offered my services as a volunteer, but then was invited to attend as a guest blogger… even better!!!
March 23rd marked the 2 month countdown to TedxStanley Park! Today is the LAST DAY you can get early bird tickets!
