We have lots of news: New license-holder and organizer, new curator, new date, new speakers and performers, new teams and a new theme. Same venue.
Our new license-holder and organizer is Russell Stall with Greenville Forward.
Our new curator is Despina Yeargin. She’s been on the Program Team for the last two events, so she’s not really new, but we’ll let her enjoy that new curator smell for a while.
Our new date is Friday, March 22, 2013.
New speakers and performers…AHA! That’s where YOU come in! Please nominate your By Design Speaker or Performer for TEDxGreenville 2013, and tell other TEDxers that you know to do the same.
Our new theme is By Design. We are looking at the new theme as a way of life, a way which guides us forward with intention, therefore, By Design = with intent.
Same venue: You told us that you liked the Kroc Center, so we are going to do our TEDxing there again on March 22, 2013. Thanks for the good feedback! We do listen to what you say, unlike your mother-in-law.
New teams. The amazing people who made things happen for TEDxGreenville 2010 (the very first one in the entire state of South Carolina), for TEDxGreenville 2011 and 2012 wanted to move over and let others bring their energy and ideas to the TEDx table, so keep an eye out for a few new faces, but with support and guidance from the wisdom of our experienced folks. Thank you to Marc Bolick, Aaron von Frank, Susan von Frank and Brenda Laaskso and NEXT, you’ve given us three successful TEDxGreenville events with lots of Ideas Worth Spreading. For your time, energy, creativity and wisdom, the people of the TEDxGreenville community that you’ve built thank you! We appreciate and recognize your efforts. WTG!
