Looking for Inspiration: TEDX Boca

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” And after one year in Delray, the event is headed to Boca Raton with a wide variety of speakers that are sure to leave you inspired.

This year’s event is set for May 9 at FAU. It’s an eclectic line-up featuring accomplished speakers with backgrounds in technology, sales, design, environmental science and more.

Featured speakers include sea level expert John Englander, hypnotist Lucas Handwerker, violinist Randi Fishenfeld and architect Lynn Min.

TEDX is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.

 TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x stands for an independently organized TED event.

 What you’ll find at every TEDx event:

 •TED’s celebrated format: A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances (live, or just TEDTalks videos from TED.com) on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder — and to provoke conversations that matter

•TEDTalks videos: A minimum of two pre-recorded talks from the acclaimed TEDTalks video series (these talks are available free on TED.com)

•Bias-free programming: Lack of any commercial, religious or political agenda.
