TED Salons

TED Salons welcome an intimate audience for an afternoon or evening of highly-curated TED Talks revolving around a globally relevant theme. A condensed version of a TED flagship conference, they are distinct in their brevity, opportunities for conversation, and heightened interaction between the speaker and audience.

To crossover is to fully embrace what complements us, finding insight and illumination from a style or field adjacent to our own. When fully achieved, it allows us to become greater than the sum of our parts, collaborating, sharing and working together to not only learn from each other but apply our unique strengths to a common goal. Bringing together speakers from multiple domains, they’ll tell of reaching a crossroads and then taking it a step further: crossing over to achieve a heightened level of success only possible by stretching, bridging and ultimately uniting.
