TEDxEustis Announces Speaker Lineup for In-Person 2022 Conference
Published on September 06, 2021
The organizing team of the non-profit TEDxEustis conference is proud to announce that the 2022 conference will continue as a live, in person event with appropriate health safety measures in place. The fifth annual event, which is based upon the world renowned TED conference and is sponsored in part by the City of Eustis, features 14 speakers and several performers sharing their "ideas worth spreading" and will take place on Saturday, January 29th, 2022.
“TED and TEDx talks on YouTube already have more than seven billion views,” says organizer Timothy Totten, who recently completed training for a large audience TEDx license for Eustis with his co-organizer, Byron Faudie. “TED talks are designed to provoke conversation and share ideas worth spreading, TEDx conferences are in the same vein.”
The talks for the 2022 conference were selected from a record 115 applications submitted by speakers from across the United States and around the world.
"Our speakers will share with us ideas like why friendship is just as important as romance, fun ways to turn trash into fashion, and how to change the narrative of a 'bad' school through social media," says Faudie, who will share with Totten the responsibilities for attendee experience and community engagement for TEDxEustis.
The speaker lineup for 2022 includes:
Dr. Renee Baker
Dr. Katie Nall
Dr. Terese Roth
Tickets for this exciting event go on sale Monday, September 13th at 9:00am at www.tedxeustis.com. Those interested in volunteer opportunities for this event can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
About TED TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today's leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED's annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
TED's open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a "wish," or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
