TEDx event at MSOE

Chaitanya Kulkarni

Can we organize a TEDx event at MSOE? 

How many people would like to see such an event being held at MSOE?

If organized, which speakers would you like to invite?

    I would love to see a TEDx event here at MSOE!!

     

     

    A) the link provided, when clicked, just takes  you to the HUB home. I needed to copy and paste it in a new tab to check it out, fyi.

     

    B) I know you posed this question 2 weeks ago, but I just saw it and will need time to look into speaker options. I am sure there are thousands of potential awesome speakers!

      Thanks for informing about the link Mark, I don't know why it's doing that and how I can edit it to make it work as it should.

      And yeah I too would love to see a TEDx event at MSOE and yes there are thousands of brilliant people we can call for this event - it would be good to know from students which speakers they would like to have.

      I hope the MSOE administration likes this idea and gives it a thought.

    Sounds like a great idea! Maybe one of the directors from big events around Milwaukee, like Summerfest? I think that would be really cool!

    MSOE helped sponsor a TEDx event in Milwaukee this Spring, but it was off campus.  Dr. David Howell was involved in the event, and might be a good person to talk to.

    Yes, the office of Servant-Leadership worked with one of our Brady Foundation grants to enable a group of students taking a course in Project Management to facilitate the event. You can check it out at http://www.ted.com/tedx/events/6556.

     

    We are talking about helping coordinate another TEDx event. We aren't as interested in hosting an event on campus as we are interested in hosting one in the inner-city (well, the MLK Business District)--as a way of providing greater visibility to parts of Milwaukee that need it. That's not to say that MSOE wouldn't benefit from such visibility.

      David Howell, let me know if there is any way I might be able to assist. I was pretty active in NEWaukee recently and was involved in discussions of TEDx in MKE.

       

      I know this post is from October, but felt I would poke the fire incase the idea hasn't been acted on as of yet.

    If we could get Sir Ken Robinson (How School Kills Creativity) to come down that would be awesome! I really liked his talk.
