I’m 2 days removed from TEDx Detroit and I miss it.
I miss the connections.
I miss seeing my fellow board members.
I miss seeing the attendees.
I miss seeing the inspiration.
I miss seeing the optimism.
I’m glad I miss it. Now I’m hopeful that everyone that attended has something to grasp onto and feel inspired.
Inspired to do.
Inspired to create.
Inspired to share.
Inspired to make a difference.
The story from Wednesday that continues to resonate in my head is the one of connecting tw0 lab participants in a possible business deal. That’s what TEDx is all about. Bringing people together and allowing their creativity to grow, their ideas to develop and ultimately putting them into action.
A special note to my fellow board members of TEDx Detroit. Thank you for the opportunity to serve with you. All of you have a special place in my heart because of the passion that you have for what this event is all about. I learned a lot and I look forward to doing it all over again next year. There are so many memories that I’d love to share and it would take me hours to gather them here in this post. So the memories I’ll leave you with are photos. Photos from Sarah Cunningham, author and one of our awesome volunteer photographers. Take a look at her view of TEDx Detroit from her camera lens.
So many memories to last a lifetime.
To all the attendees, take what you learned and inspired you and do something with it. Our opportunity is now to show the world what we can do. Take the lead. Make it happen.
