The October 20th sold out event at the Victoria Theatre, where an audience of more than 1,100 came to see the talks firsthand. Now, TED’s distribution channel will make the talks from Dayton available for worldwide viewing.
Diane Farrell, TEDxDayton co-chair, said, “You have to be brave to step up and take on the challenge of preparing for a TEDxDayton talk. The process is rigorous, but every speaker says the rewards of the experience far outweigh the demands.”
Ron Rollins, TEDxDayton co-chair, added, “Every year, I’m blown away by what our speakers deliver on the TEDxDayton stage. As in past years, during year five our speakers gave their thoughts on a wide, interesting range of topics that provided not just food for thought, but also demonstrated how Dayton is home to so many intelligent, committed, fascinating people.”
