Imagine you're back stage. A crowd of 300 people anxiously awaiting your every word.
You’re nervous, but prepared. Your whole life has led to this moment. You’re ready to tell the world about something you care about deeply, in a way that only you can. You hear your name. The crowd cheers. It’s time. You step out from behind the curtain. You know everything is about to change.
Not many have the courage to take that step. Fewer have the ideas and authenticity to back it up. This helps explain why we feel something profound when we witness it — a person who embodies their passions, values, and knowledge taking the stage to share an idea they believe will improve lives.
That’s the magic of TED. That’s why I watch TEDTalks and volunteer to help organize TEDxTemecula events. Once a year, TEDxTemecula brings our region's brightest innovators, thinkers, and change makers to the stage for a one day conference.
One former TEDxTemecula speaker had this to say about the event’s importance to the region, “TEDxTemecula puts us on the map. It causes people to think bigger. It offers the opportunity and platform for people to share their passion and educate others.”
This October at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater, a select few will have the rare opportunity to share their story with the TEDx audience and the world.
This is YOUR stage Temecula. Use it!
Do you or someone you know have an idea worth spreading? TEDxTemecula wants to know about it. Our experienced team can help prepare individuals for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
