Attending TEDxLSSC

TEDxLSSC will be an exciting, inspiring day filled with engaging, paradigm-shifting talks. It will also be an opportunity to network and learn from each other.

Coordinating a TED or TEDx event is much like planning a dinner party; you want to make sure that you have the ideal combination of guests to create the best possible experience. As such, attendance at TED events is by application only, and we will be following that same approach at TEDxLSSC. Space is limited, and applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to apply soon!

TEDxLSSC sessions will include live speakers as well as a featured TED Talk video. Breaks will allow an opportunity for attendees to dialog about exciting ideas being shared. Lunch will be provided and an opportunity for further discussion. We will wrap-up the day with a Reception to allow attendees to meet the Speakers and further spread the “Ideas worth sharing.”
