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.
Please bring food and drink, if you wish to.
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 September, TEDxOrlandoSalon attendees will vote to view two talks from the following curated selection:
||What do we do when antibiotics don't work anymore?|
||Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong|
||How to revive a neighborhood with imagination, beauty and art|
|Gayle Tzemach Lemmon:
||Meet the first women to fight on the front lines of an American war|
||A tale of two Americas and the mini mart where they collided|
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.
