What Attendees Say About Us

It was an amazing and inspiration day. The entertainment components especially meant a great day to me. I’ve been telling everyone that they need to invest in themselves and go next year.

I think the exploration and presentment of new and innovative ideas fosters discussion, opens perspective, and creates an opportunity for meaningful dialog. Well structured, well presented, and thoroughly entertaining, I would confidently encourage friends and colleagues to attend.

Eye opening, Mind refreshing, opportunity driven for positive thinking and meaningful action for Change in the World, this being on a personal level and a translation in a context of wider impact.

TEDxSanDiego is a catalyst for spreading ideas that change our world
