What are the monthly meetings like?
TEDxOrlandoSalon events are held at Valencia College locations.
A typical meeting draws approximately 50 smart, interesting, engaged people. Some will be regulars and some will be newcomers.
Two TEDTalk videos are shown, each followed by a discussion break. The event program is determined by vote, and discussions are open-ended.
Light refreshments will be provided, courtesy of Valencia College.
Please note that Salon events do not feature live speakers; the focus is on participation in conversation and discussion.
What talks will be on the program?
In August, TEDxOrlandoSalon attendees will vote to view two talks from the following curated selection:
||Why it is time to forget the pecking order at work|
|Dame Stephanie Shirley:
||Why do ambitious women have flat heads?|
||Are China and the U.S. doomed to conflict?|
|Nadine Burke Harris:
||How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime|
||I was held hostage for 317 days -- here's what I thought about|
Should I eat ahead of time?
Light refreshments will be available; you are welcome to bring your dinner with you if you'd like.
TEDxOrlando Code of Conduct
TEDxOrlando and TEDxOrlandoSalon are about the exchange of meaningful ideas and deep discussion, not selling. Opportunities do sometimes result from contacts made at our meetings and we encourage that. However, we ask that you refrain from using TEDxOrlando or TEDxOrlandoSalon primarily as a platform for promoting yourself, your personal political or religious views, your business, or your organization.
