During Poynter’s fourth TEDx event, we will tap into the minds of influential thought leaders who will share a broad range of ways disruption fuels innovation.

TEDxPoynterInstitute will feature a diversity of speakers from across several disciplines — including technology and media.

These speakers will tell stories of how they have used change to help them, and others, grow. They will provide examples of how thinking the unthinkable can spark unexpected solutions. They will share the good they have from disruptive events in their lives.

In short, together we will explore the useful innovation that can come from disruption.

TEDxPoynterInstitute will maintain the spirit of TED by focusing on the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. This event will promote learning, inspiration and wonder — and provoke conversations that matter.

This limited group of 100 participants will have access to the speakers throughout the day, so that they can ask additional questions and share ideas inspired by the speakers’ talks.
