TEDxToronto

A couple weeks ago, I had honour and pleasure of being selected as a delegate at TEDxToronto. Many of you are familiar with TED, the annual ‘meeting of the greatest minds’ where each speaker has no more than 18 minutes to share his idea and get his or her complex point across. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The theme this year was “A Call to Action” and the speakers were truly inspiring. Here were my faves:

Boonaa Mohammed’s slam poem on economics of prejudice

Bruce Poon Tip on the expanded the triple bottom line (people, planet, profits) to include “passion” and “purpose”

Drew Dudley on leadership and lollipop moments

Trey Anthony’s 1st standing ovation of the day on breaking the boxes people put you in

Neil Pasricha’s tale of how he came to write the blog 1,000 Awesome Things and The Book of Awesome

Not all the videos seem to be posted and I will update this post as I find out they’re up. Big thanks to the organizers and hope I get selected to be a delegate next year.
