Meet "TED"

And learn tailored tools to "TED-ify" any event

Please join the Pacific Northwest Chapter at our February program with Andrea Driessen, Chief Boredom Buster of Seattle-based No More Boring Meetings.

Over a billion TED videos, and counting, have been downloaded around the world. So what IS it about the TED experience—whether you attend a live TED or TEDx event, or watch TED videos in your jammies—that has the world in general, and the meetings industry in particular, abuzz? Why are people across cultures and industries integrating TED-style elements into their own meetings? You’re inviTED to join us on Feb. 17 to find out, so you can “TED-ify” your next gathering. We’ll explore and experience:

  • What makes an event “TED-like”—and what doesn’t
  • How to coach your speakers—and yourself—to use TED-style presentation techniques so audiences pay more attention
  • Why less content and staging can in fact be more powerful
  • Simple, affordable ways you can build TED-style engagement and exclusivity into any meeting
  • Why “curating” some meeting content can lower your stress and boost your effectiveness

Andrea Driessen, Chief Boredom Buster of Seattle-based No More Boring Meetings, is an award-winning business owner, a TEDActive attendee and a speaker curator for TEDxRainier. She has been busting boredom and bringing compelling thought leaders, fresh meeting formats and purposeful play to meetings for 25 years.

This session is not sponsored, authorized or endorsed by TED Conferences LLC.
