Host Robyn Shanti speaks with Michelle Jones, a faculty member at Concordia University and coordinator of the TEDxConcordiaUPortland.
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) has held conferences for more than 25 years, giving innovative speakers a chance to “make a presentation of a lifetime” which spread “ideas worth sharing.” For several years, TED has licensed local TEDx events.
This year’s theme is “Becoming Extraordinary.” Every extraordinary action in the world stemmed from an ordinary person. This year's theme is designed to bring out each individual's own extraordinariness. Through this year's TEDx Talks, attendees will be inspired by real life examples of ordinary individuals who have been, done, or found their own extraordinariness to impact their world.
