Last month I had the pleasure of attending my second TEDx event at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). Sponsored by the UNR College of Business Online Executive MBA program, this year’s event featured an incredible lineup of 22 accomplished and inspirational speakers. For a full description of speakers, their backgrounds, and why you should be interested in hearing more from each of them, please check out the first link in the bulleted list below.
If you aren’t familiar with the event, TEDx is a program designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently on a community-by-community basis.
In the last month I have been busy writing a series of blog posts summarizing the event. I am so proud to have graduated from UNR and to have met such inspiring professors as Dr. Bret Simmons, who also happens to be the organizer of the TEDxUniversityofNevada event. It’s great to see that the University is inspiring growth, change, and excellence in the community by taking the time to organize and host these talks each year.
Without further ado, below are the links to the posts I’ve written summarizing this year’s event, all of which have relevance to the topics of marketing and/or business in general:
- TEDxUniversityofNevada 2014: Discern, Impact, Innovate, Flourish
- Never Believe That a Few Caring People Can’t Change the World
- Thoughts on Productivity, Leadership, Performance and Excellence
- How to Understand, Analyze, Build, and Foster Your Community
- Emerging From Grief and Pushing Through to Hope
- Get Bothered, Stay Bothered
- Education is Always Evolving, and So Are You
- Harnessing Knowledge, Maximizing Productivity, and Harvesting Intangible Assets
If you haven’t had the chance to watch any of the 22 videos, make sure to bookmark the playlist and catch a couple in your free time – you will not be disappointed.
