Amazing! Thought provoking! Intense! Fun and Funny! Engaging! Probing! Touching! The TEDxIIT 2015 was all that and more. It was my first, of what I hope will be many TEDx events. The IIT people have done this five times now and it shows. They were organized, efficient, friendly and most of all inspiring.
The speakers were top notch. My favorites were Roger Breisch, Valerie Jencks, Sunny Shah, Todd Diehl and JD Gershbein. You can watch all five hours and all 17 speakers here.
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community. The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.
TEDx provides a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking video and mind-blowing conversation. TEDx is a relevant, lifelong learning opportunity for the community. It's time is NOW1
I'm so glad I was able to be a part of it.
