TED is a global platform devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. TEDx is a locally organized event that focuses on individuals, ideas and innovation in various cities and communities around the world. TED began in 1984 as a gathering place for innovators and leaders in the fields of Technology, Entertainment and Design. Today TED has become the hub for a global community of individuals who believe in the power of ideas worth spreading. Visit: TED
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPlano, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPlano event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Visit: TEDx
