Each year, Toledo's leading thinkers and doers gather for an event many describe as the highlight of their year. Attendees have called it "The ultimate brain spa", in the company of those creating it."
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design. Speakers are from various industries, backgrounds, and world views, and give the "talk of their lives" in under 18 minutes. The speakers are prominent notables, and people you've never heard of but are doing amazing things and changing the world.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
"This kind of joy needs to be shared."Robin Charney, TEDxToledo 2012
