Toronto TEDx Talks

TEDx TorontoOn Thursday, September 26th I spent the day attending the Toronto TEDx Talks at the Royal Conservatory of Music downtown.  Many of you have watched these Talks online, but it was quite an experience to see them live.  The theme of the talks this year was “The Choices We Make.”

The speakers for the day included:

  • Ti-Anna Wang, Advocate for Chinese Dissident Families
  • Michael Stone, Director, Centre of Gravity
  • Rodolphe el-Khoury, University of Toronto and Parnter in Khoury Levit Fong
  • Darrell Bricker, CEO, Ipsos Global Public Affairs
  • Joel MacCharles, Co-Founder WellPreserved.ca, Writer, Cook
  • Steve Mann, University of Toronto
  • Gabrielle Scrimshaw, President, Aboriginal Professional Association of Canada
  • Steph Guthrie, Feminist Advocate and Community Manager
  • Mark Henick, Case Manager, Canadian Mental Health Association
  • Dr. Ivar Mendez, University of Saskatchewan
  • Brendan Frey, University of Toronto
  • Debbie Berlin-Romalis, Clinical Social Worker, SickKids
  • Mark Bowden, President, TRUTHPLANE

The organizers are beginning to post the talks from Toronto online, and most of them will be available later this month.  You can find out more by going to: www.TEDxToronto.com.  If you have ever considered attending a TED conference, I would encourage you to apply to be a delegate next year.  September 26th was certainly a day full of thoughtful, inspiring and insightful ideas.
