We’re pleased to announce that Air Canada is now the official airline of TEDxWinnipeg! Air Canada becoming one of our valued sponsors this year will have an added benefit for someone this year — one of our guests will be awarded return airfare for two to one of over 200 destinations worldwide! There’s a tiny bit of fine print for these promotional tickets, of course — they’re valid for travel on Air Canada, Air Canada Rouge and Jazz scheduled flights only, and you need to fly by the end of next year, 2019.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TEDXWINNIPEG ANNOUNCES SPEAKERS FOR 2018 EVENT
Eighth annual TEDxWinnipeg event to take place on June 13, 2018
WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, APRIL 10, 2018 – Speakers have been announced for TEDxWinnipeg 2018, a full-day event taking place June 13, 2018 at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg.
TEDxWinnipeg again presents a program filled with insightful and inspiring talks, arranged this year under the theme of “Challenge”. Speakers and topics include:
“To remain indifferent to the challenges we face is indefensible. If the goal is noble, whether or not it is realized within our lifetime is largely irrelevant. What we must do therefore is to strive and persevere and never give up.” ― Dalai Lama XIV
TEDxWinnipeg is back for our 8th year of bringing innovative, creative, and thought-provoking speakers to the stage.
This year’s lineup includes another fantastic group of inspiring speakers for a full day of talks that will make you think, make you laugh, and might even make you tear up a little bit.
If you’re not following us on Meetup.com, you should jump over there and join the group! You’ll find a couple of events have been announced between now and our June 6th annual full day event. TEDxWinnipegSalon events are smaller gatherings or meetups throughout the year, and we’ve announced two additional events.
