In the lead-up to TEDWomen, TEDx organizers make connections

Before this year’s TEDWomen, a group of dedicated, enthusiastic TEDx organizers sat in the historic Perry House in Monterey, California, discussing what it means to organize a truly meaningful TEDx event. They came from Kazakhstan, Australia, Venezuela, Switzerland and beyond, even from right within the city limits of Monterey.

The group shared in small discussions about their events, their cities, their communities, their speakers and their hopes for future events. TED staff led breakouts on curation, team-building and overall event experience. It was a heartening experience for all, says TEDx Community Development + Engagement Manager Amanda Ellis, one that provided new insights in the experience of many TEDx’ers.
