What are we up to?

With the arrival of Spring, we’re hard at work on this year’s program. Reviewing over 300 speaker nominations to find the 12 who will best represent the diversity of our theme is a difficult task, but it’s one we always look forward to. Created Future(s) will explore our individual efforts and collective ability to craft a more enlightening future.

Partnership Opportunities

In the meantime, we are seeking a few partners to support our program. Registration fees only cover 70% of our annual expense, so the generosity of our partners is key to making the magic happen. Of special interest this year is finding Education Partners to underwrite under-served high school students, and Innovation Partners who help fund Innovation Alley.

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
