TEDxPeachtree seeks to bring the TED experience to Georgia and is one of the most established TEDx groups in the state. At the event, recorded TEDTalks and live speakers from Georgia and beyond share ideas to solve macro and micro challenges in a day-long conference. TEDxPeachtree talks over the last five conferences have sparked deep discussion, connection, collaboration and lasting impact.
The TED Conference provides general guidance to TEDx groups but individual TEDx events, like in Atlanta, are self-organized in content and financial support. This is an all-volunteer team of dedicated professionals who share a passion for ideas worth sharing and who believe that we can all make an impact when we – business and civic leaders, innovators, scientists, artists and entertainers – come together. The speakers each year are curated around a central theme and for 2014, the theme is “Illuminate!”
DeKalb Office is thrilled to have donated design time for conference set up as well as all rental furniture for TEDxPeachtree. We’ve sent a group derived of representatives from each of our office locations to be “illuminated” and soak in a day of creativity and motivation.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
