So, not too long ago Jonny Hodder mentioned TEDx St. John’s to me and suggested I pitch a presentation to them. To make a long story short, they fell for my scheme! MUAH-HAHAHAHA! *ahem* Yes, anyways, they liked my audition and I’ll be presenting at TEDx St. John’s!
*graciously accepts all applause and praise, then bows and returns to the podium*
Yeah, so the theme of this TEDx is Overcoming Adversity and my presentation will discuss how creativity can help people do just that. Although I’ll try to speak broadly about creative thinking at home, work, and school, my own anecdotal evidence revolves around my experience in e-publishing. This presentation won’t be nearly as stuffy and complex as my previous, more academic presentations; instead, this is more laid back, like I’m just telling a story. It may even be a little humourous.
I have no idea exactly what the other speakers will present on, but the list of speakers has me excited and I’m really stoked to be a part of TEDx! So, if you’re free the evening of May 25th and you’re into ideas worth spreading, then check it out! You can find ticket information here. At the moment, it looks like there are some general admission tickets still available!
