On Saturday, March 31, 2012, TEDxNashville hosted its third annual event titled "Impact — Making a Difference" at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Distinguished leaders in technology, entertainment, design, science, art, education, government, public policy, healthcare and other areas shared their remarkable thoughts and ideas focused on creating positive changes in our society.

The leadership team of TEDxNashville comprises successful entrepreneurs, artists, technologists, communication professionals, philanthropists and PhDs. Building on the highly successful 2010 event titled "Art + Science: The Future of Health," the 2011 event "A Sense of Wonder,” and the 2012 event, "Impact: Making a Difference,' this team has established a program that will inspire our community to engage in innovation for social change and serve as the foundation for a strong, ongoing TEDx presence in Middle Tennessee.
