For the Love of TEDx

A while back I made a big to-do list for the year 2014. One of the things on the list was to volunteer for TEDxPeachtree 2014. I can proudly say I jumped into the project and it has been great fun. I am on the communications/social media team and I have had the joy of speaking with TEDx talent as well as watching more talks than you can imagine. In the role I have met some great new people and learned a lot about how much work it takes to produce a TED or Tex event.

If you are in Atlanta October 17th buy your tickets by clicking here.

For all of you who are wondering TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design.

My name is not Biff Tannen (that is a “Back to the Future” reference for you young whipper snappers) and I completely believe that the space-time continuum is not to be trifled with. I have to stick to what wisdom could have realistically served me without massive monetary gain. My list is full of worries and doubt that kept me up at night, made me doubt my talents, my brains and most of the choices that I have made for the last 20 years.
