A speaker for a TEDx event is one who brings something bigger to the table, something that will make our attendees sit up, think and feel the confidence to make a difference in their own world. It's important for everyone to realize that these speakers are ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Admission to TEDxCherryCreekED is free but by invitation only. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
