Hope is the understanding of what it would be like if a good idea turned into action. This is the chance to take a great idea and amplify it through one of the strongest thought leader networks the world has ever seen. Do you want to change the world? At TEDxVictoria 2013, several people may do just that, as several have done at prior TEDxVictoria events. You could be one of the people who plants the seeds for hope.
Get ready to inspire. Give hope. Get ready for emergence. Good luck.
While serving as Director of Marketing for TEDxVictoria, I’ve been asked to explain what TEDxVictoria is several times. This is good – it makes me think and re-think of how to explain this thing I’ve gotten passionate enough about to volunteer my time for. Also, I am in the position of setting up and coordinating the TEDxVictoria outreach team, who will be fielding questions on TEDxVictoria: Momentum. So there is that, too.
I would normally be doing this in a Google Doc that’s shared with the rest of the TEDxVictoria management team. However, because I feel like having some fun and I don’t mind doing things for the public while in public, it’s going to live here instead. I’ll field any questions about anything that is unclear.
Here are the facts on this year’s TEDxVictoria event with some background. Call this a factground, if you will:
TEDxVictoria is a TEDx license, x = independently organized TED event, where subject matter experts gather to do 10-20~ minute talks broadly based within a theme.
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design.
Earlybird tickets (discounted at $50 for those who are quick on the draw) are sold out.
Contributor tickets (at $100, these tickets are for those who wish to support the event and make it a little nicer) are sold out.
Follow TEDxVictoria on Twitter: @TEDxVictoria – this is a pretty good way to stay connected with us as well as the ideas that we come across which we find worth sharing. You can ask us questions through this account as well.
Join us on the TEDxVictoria Facebook page for continual updates throughout the year and to connect with the TEDxVictoria community in general. There are a lot of thought leaders in Victoria.
If you’ve bought a ticket online with your email address, you will receive an email explaining how to get some free coffee from 2% Jazz care of the great folks at Kiind. If you supply your email address while picking up a physical ticket from Russell Books, you are also eligible for this, but it will take a little longer to get the offer via email since we have to actually go and collect that list from the store.
We are doing something awesome with the Quiz Night at the Fort Street Cafe. If you are even a tiny bit of a brainiac, you should be aware of their Friday evening tradition, Quiz Night. It’s astonishingly good times. Go!
TEDxVictoria is a non-profit is run by a non-profit organization of volunteers. Our values are ideas, community, action. Momentum fits nicely on the end of that list. Read more about us on the TEDxVictoria website.
