TEDxOPS was a Corporate event, open only to Ontario Public Servants. Please contact melissa.tullio at ontario.ca if you have any questions.
What/Who: TEDxOPS 2013 was led by Neill Kernohan and an enthusiastic team of organizers and volunteers, with support from the Provincial Interministerial Councils and Centre for Innovation + Workplace Culture. This year's theme was "What if?", a question that provoked a wide variety of talks, directly or indirectly related to OPS experiences and stories.
When: The confirmed date of the event was during Creativity and Innovation Week: Thursday, April 18, from 1-5pm - followed, as always, by an after party close to the event site.
Where: Alumni Hall 100, St. Michael's College, University of Toronto, Toronto
How: This year's event was webcast thanks to our talented sound/AV volunteers across more than 30 locations across Ontario.
Please contact Melissa Tullio if you'd like any other details.
