TEDxZumbroRiver is back!
If you have never heard of TED talks, you are missing out. TED talks have engaging innovative speakers that are looking to spread new ideas. The talks get packaged up into a video and circulated world-wide for everyone's viewing pleasure. One of my favorite TED talks is "Why we do what we do" by Tony Robbins. TEDx is a TED-like event and provides an opportunity for local independent organizers to have one in their own community. Co-organizers, Ben Creo and Barb Spurrier helped make this a reality in Rochester - hence the manifistation of TEDxZumbroRiver.
What is TEDxZumbroRiver?
TEDxZumbroRiver is a program that consists of local speakers who each have approximately 15-minutes on stage to present a powerful talk on an idea worth spreading. The event brings together storytellers and speakers with powerful insights on a variety of topics.
In 2016, TEDxZumbroRiver made its inaugural appearance in Rochester where more than 1000 attendees gathered for the one-day event, making it the largest TEDx in Minnesota.
I caught up with Ben Creo and Sheryl Barlow. Here's what they had to say about upcoming Pitch Night: Thursday, January 12, 2017. They're accepting speaker applications now.
