TEDxOrlandoSalon is back!

Several years ago, my students and I had the opportunity to attend a TEDxOrlandoSalon meeting at a local restaurant, Taste. For the past three years, the TEDxOrlando group, Jenny Casey, Dave Casey, Adora English, and most recently Barbara Shell of Valencia College have been bringing the conversational spirit of TED to the Orlando area via monthly salon meetings as well as an annual TEDx Conference (the first conference was held in 2010 and I was fortunate enough to attend; James Neihouse’s talk had me in tears!).

Sadly, Taste closed it’s doors in 2013, so the future of TEDxOrlandoSalon was unknown. Barbara Shell and Valencia College have come to the rescue and have agreed to provide a new meeting space for local TEDsters. Meetings will now take place monthly at Valencia College’s West Campus Event Center. The event is free to the public and features folks watching a selection of TED talks (and sometimes live presenters).  This month’s TEDxOrlando Salon will be on Thursday, February 20th from 6-9 pm. Stoked cannot described how I am feeling about the return of TEDxOrlandoSalon! See you there, Orlando TEDsters!

Check out this excellent TEDxOrlando talk by PechaKucha Orlando presenter, teacher, and Orlando Psycho City Roller Derby girl Amy Selikoff, and, visit the TEDxOrlando site for more information and to register for the first session of the new year!
