TED talks have a long history of inspiration. TED was conceived in 1984 as a conference of Technology, Engineering, and Design. But today, TED talks may cover almost anything. These short yet powerful talks have impacted thousands of lives globally. They often contain powerful stories that help people in professional and personal development and draw a large crowd.
TED happens globally in more than 100 languages on different topics, including science and global concerns. If you have always wanted to attend a TED session, then wouldn’t it be great to have it in your city? Imagine you don’t need to spend a lot of money on travel to some large cities, and still, you can be a part of the TED talks experience.
TED Comes to You
Over the years, TED has given rise to a more localized version called TEDx. These are the local version of TED that aim to be as powerful as TED Talks. The content and performances are on par with TED. However, TEDx talks are managed and coordinated independently by communities for the community. Although the content of TEDx talks is developed uniquely, there are some common features in all TEDx talks.
TEDx is a nice alternative to TED Talks because they happen locally. It is easy for many people to attend, and they get to hear some powerful talks, connect with the local community, and have a great learning experience. Just like TED, TEDx has no commercial, political, or religious agenda. TEDx is completely based on local communities and no scope of biases. If you are looking for a community event that sparks conversation, ideas, connection, and community, then you should be visiting one.
To that end, do you know that TEDx talks are coming to Gilbert, A.Z.? If you live in the Southwest, you should make it a point to come. TEDxGilbert Emerge 2020 is happening on May 2, 2020, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. MST. TEDxGilbert will be taking place at the Gilbert High School Auditorium.
