TEDxAcademy 2017 – ‘Our Best Self’

This year at TEDxAcademy we want to ask the simple questions. Are we making a big enough impact in the world?

Do we make a meaningful difference in the lives of others in our community?

Everything begins when we dare to show up as the best version of ourselves. This sounds simple but it requires vigilance and demanding effort. When we are at our best selves, we pursue the future with courage, profound human connection, imagination, thrilling possibility and understanding.

Because ultimately, this is why we are on the planet:

For each of us to show up as the best person we can be – not for selfish reasons, but because our communities and the world deserves our best efforts to help make them better!

Session 1: Global View

At TEDxAcademy we invite some of the world’s biggest dreamers, to give them a platform to share their vision of how the world can be a better place. We want to reignite the spark and passion about the future of the world.

Session 2: Local Communities

Humanity’s greatest “superpower” is the ability to vision the future, ignite excitement, share it with others and make it happen. This year, we are inviting leaders who bring their best selves to their communities to share our stage.

Session 3: Human Dimension

What does the best version of our selves look like? Are we taking on the right job? The right decisions? What motivates us? How do we deal with risk? How do we understand the future? Are we ready to experience our best self?
