What Attendees Say About TEDxSanDiego
The entire experience was professional from start to finish, from the registration desk to the seating to the experiences and, of course, especially the talks!
While all the speakers and experiences were awesome in showing how the world is using technology, entertainment, and design to further advance the world, bring healing, and inspire each other, it was really the community that was the most inspirational for me.
I was inspired and moved and began to care for myself in small ways after last year’s event. Because of those changes, I know I have been better able to contribute to the world, whether my work or my family or other activities.
What is TEDx
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSanDiego, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSanDiego event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
