This review was written by Hilary Friesen, a first-time TEDxWinnipeg volunteer.
Tuesday was my first TEDx Winnipeg experience. And I have Brent Toderash, who asked me to volunteer on the marketing committee, to thank for it.
TEDxWinnipeg 2017 was a packed day of interesting and inspiring speakers, meeting new people and live-tweeting the whole experience. As I look back, what stands out to me are the common threads and interconnections between the speakers – a testament, I’m sure, to the care and dedication the organizers put into selecting the program.
On Tuesday, at TEDxWinnipeg 2017, emcee Caity Curtis used quotes from the day’s TEDx Talks and guests’ post-its and notes at the game stations to craft a found poem that she read to the audience. Here is the poem.
