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.
There are just seven weeks to go to TEDxWinnipeg 2017! This week, guests are being notified of whether their application was accepted to attend. In the meantime, learn a little bit more about the speakers who will be spreading their big ideas at TEDxWinnipeg on June 6!
Ali Saeed talks about refugees and the need to speak up against oppression (The Times).
Dené Sinclair talks about how indigenous people participate in tourism (The Lance).
In its 6th year running, TEDxWinnipeg (formerly TEDxManitoba) is pleased to announce headliners Israel Idonije (Israel Idonije Foundation) and Dr. Nicole Buckley (Canadian Space Agency) will join its distinguished lineup of speakers for the June 2nd event at the Tom Hendry Warehouse Theatre in downtown Winnipeg.
With applications flowing in and a little over a month left to submit, you might be wondering: what’s so great about attending TEDxWinnipeg? After all, you can view previous great TEDxWinnipeg talks online. However, there are some things in life that can’t be replicated through a screen. We’ve asked around and come up with the following ten reasons people love attending TEDxWinnipeg.
Nice mention for TEDxWinnipeg in the MTS Business Hub today — highlights a few of last year’s talks and includes the all-important reminder to get your application in for this year’s event. (Thanks, Mark!)
