Save the date! TEDxDetroit returns to the Motor City with a day of inspiration, ideas, and innovation on October 8, 2015. For its seventh year, the event moves to a new venue: the historic Fox Theatre in downtown Detroit.
The one-day conference brings together entrepreneurs, creators, designers, makers, doers, artists, and geeks talking about and sharing positive ideas for the world from Detroit.
If you’re not familiar, TEDx events are locally produced independent community events, bringing together local people to share a TED-like experience with speakers and TEDTalks on technology, entertainment, and design.
My first TEDx event was the inaugural TEDxUofM in 2010 (my Flickr photos) at the University of Michigan.
In 2014, I chatted with Professor Anne Curzan about Frindle at TEDxUofM 2014. Last fall, I was a volunteer at TEDxDetroit 2014.
The personal stories are what draws me to TEDx events; I love hearing about the exciting adventures, accomplishments, and successes of people in our Detroit community.
