Speaker Update: Todd Scott Imagines AEDs in a Galaxy Far, Far Away at [email protected]

New York isn’t quite a galaxy far, far away, but just in case Todd Scott took a wookie along for the trip. And, of course, some humorous tips for using an automatic external defibrillator (AED).

Seven Questions With Sonya Ballantyne

Seven Questions With Sonya Ballantyne

Sonya Ballantyne is a finance clerk by day and a filmmaker by night. Sonya loves telling stories to new people, something she’ll get to do at TEDx Winnipeg 2017. We asked Sonya a few questions to get to know her better before she takes the stage on June 6.

Why are you excited to speak at TEDxWinnipeg?

The opportunity to reach out to as many people as I can with my thoughts and ideas. Being a speaker will be like being given a megaphone that everyone is going to hear.

Peanut Buttery Synergy with Caity Curtis & Stephen Sim

Peanut Buttery Synergy with Caity Curtis & Stephen Sim

Something unexpected happened at TEDxWinnipeg 2016: an improvised talk by comedy improv duo and TEDxWinnipeg hosts Caity Curtis and Stephen Sim. If the talk wasn’t weird enough already, guest Alyson Shane hashtagged it #PeanutButterSynergy on Twitter. The hashtag trended nationally alongside the official #TEDxWinnipeg and #TEDxwpg2016 tags — due no doubt in part to people asking what the heck it meant. We’re very glad to have Stephen & Caity back this year to host TEDxWinnipeg 2017. And if you missed out on #PeanutButterSynergy last year, here’s their impromptu TEDx Talk.
