The speakers are the secret sauce to this day-long Brain Spa.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
On October 15, 2012, BusinessRadioX®'s High Velocity Radio welcomed Al Meyers with TEDxPeachtree. Co-hosts Stone Payton and Lee Kantor talked with Meyers about the upcoming TEDx event happening in Atlanta on November 2nd.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. 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.
According to Meyers, "Our event is called TEDxPeachtree, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPeachtree event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group."
Meyers describes the presenters as unique, unconventional and personal. There is no pitching or promoting an agenda, but more just telling a story. "The speakers are the secret sauce to this day-long Brain Spa," says Meyers.
When Kantor asked Meyers to explain how TEDx chooses who will take the stage, Meyers explained that there is a team who assesses possible speakers. Each speaker chosen must be in alignment with the theme (which this year is Transcend), they must have a uniqueness of idea, and they must be able to make people laugh, cry and be emotionally stimulated and challenged.
Payton had the chance to attend TEDxPeachtree last year and remarked that the thing he liked the most was how the sessions were catalysts for further conversation with other attendees. Meyers agreed that the networking is a key element of TEDx.
TEDxPeachtree 2012 happens on November 2nd at The Buckhead Theatre. Space is limited and tickets are going fast. To link to TEDx's registration, as well as listen to the entirety of this interview, please visit High Velocity Radio.
