Do you have an idea worth spreading? Do you wonder how the power of words can spark creativity and foster changes in the world?
It's time you found out about TED talks: `
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support world-changing scientific, cultural and academic ideas with multiple initiatives.
At TED, world leading thinkers and doers are asked to give inspirational 18 minute speeches. Past speakers include Bill Clinton, Jane Goodall, Al Gore, Gordon Brown, Bono, Google founders Larry Page and many Nobel Prize winners.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share TED-like experiences.
TEDxMontrealWomen is an independently organized event and an integral part of the global TED Women community in Montreal.
The theme for 2015 is "Daring Greatly"
“Daring Greatly is not about winning or losing. It’s about Courage. ”
says author Brene Brown in her latest book.
On May 30th 2015, sixteen guest speakers will gather at the Montreal Cinéma Impérial to spark deep discussions and make connections with the attendees.
The TEDxMontrealWomen event challenges each and everyone of us, as functioning members of a society, to question and define our values and beliefs in an effort to create an awareness and understanding of why we behave as we do, what motivates our behaviors and what drives our decisions to conduct our lives as we do. With this increased consciousness, we discover that we are more empowered than we previously thought to make positive, disruptive and impactful changes in whichever spheres of influence we choose.
