Meet the 9 speakers who took the stage last March.
It reflects our ability as a community to adapt, particularly in perilous or uncertain times. We demonstrate our ability to adapt through the creation and sharing of ideas which propel us into action. Some actions fail, others triumph. Our strength lies in our ability to continue to adapt to improve ourselves and the context we live in.
Ideas and the sharing of ideas matter more than ever right now. We are struggling together to make it through these unprecedented times during this global pandemic. Yet even as we are in lockdown, isolated and anxious, we are guided by our ideas that help us cope and navigate through uncertainty. This ability as individuals to adapt through our ideas is powerful.
TEDxKanata is a platform for ideas worth spreading where idea seekers and open minds are inspired to act for positive change.
Our speakers come in different shapes and sizes with diverse backgrounds and varied perspectives and with or without public speaking experience. Our speaker community has a willingness to share an idea that has been shaped in their individual context and from the red dot, has the potential to become globally relevant.
Speaker applications are now closed.
TEDxKanata 2021 will be a hybrid event for this year. It is our hope to host our speakers and audience in a live, in-person environment, however, given the uncertainty and limitations of large gatherings we recognize that may not be possible.
We are therefore developing a digital experience that will allow our audience to engage with our speakers as well as each other. We will share more details in the coming weeks.
