Hilton Head Island, SC (PRWEB) September 15, 2012
On Friday, Sept. 21 from 7 – 9 p.m. Hilton Head Health (H3) will host a TEDx event centered on the topic of health and wellness. Through a series of short lectures, seven experts in their field will gather to discuss the diversity of lifestyle behaviors and how they impact health.
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.
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission. The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue. H3 is hosting a local event called TEDxHiltonHead (#TEDxHH), where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxHiltonHead, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection.
TEDxHiltonHead featured speakers include nationally recognized motivational speakers, business leaders and weight loss experts:
TEDxHiltonHead is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. To reserve, please contact H3 Fitness Director and Event Coordinator, Adam Martin at amartin(at)hhhealth(dot)com or call (843) 785-7292.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.
TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
