TEDx Omaha 2011:  What’s Possible?

12p.m.-6p.m., free live stream online for Viewing Parties


TEDx encourages organizing small group Viewing Parties with tips online to hear and discuss the dozen lively local innovators. They are rising to the challenge of delivering the “most inspiring performance of your life in 18 minutes or less” with the theme of “What’s Possible.”  Saturday’s speakers include nonprofit research and design collaborative founder and director Anne Trumble; environmental consultant Trilety Wade (who will talk about “Welcoming the Weird into your Life”); professional dancer Janel Scott, Project Interfaith founder/director Beth Katz; restaraunteur Clayton Chapman; “One Agency” advertising president Dave Weaver; poet and Encyclopedia Show Omaha host Katie F-S; public health champion Dr. Magda Peck; Seventy Five North Revitalization Corp. director Othello Meadows III; brand consultant Stuart Chittenden; 17-year-old entrepreneur Tanner O’Dell; and onstage host Roger Fransecky, founder/CEO of The Apogee Group.  Said TEDx producer Brian Smith, “My favorite part of TEDxOmaha is getting introduced to the amazing people in our community who deserve more attention than they get locally.”
