Theme: 3 C's of WONDERMENT

This event occurred on
March 2, 2011
Windsor, Ontario

The 3 C's include CREATIVITY-COLLABORATION-COMPASSION. Attendees will embrace & experience the 3 C's in a way that will act as a catalyst for discovering their own brilliance. TEDxWindsor is about breaking barriers of Geography, Gender & Generations. It's about reintroducing ourselves on the most basic, universal, HUMAN level.

As a multimedia educator, Jackie Savi-Cannon has produced an event that will engage and push boundaries in conventional professional development. This gathering is to bring forward-thinking people together to fully embrace opportunities in breaking down barriers at light speed using new channels and technology. By fully understanding conventional barriers like geography, education, gender no longer limit us, collectively we can position Windsor as a leader in healing our global community.


* An Interactive ART Display and Discussion - We begin at the AGW where the intention is to set the tone and open the minds of the attendees as to what is possible when collaborative imagination is set free. Many of our much needed global solutions are waiting to be unleashed.

* Collaborate, Learn & Grow - We loosen our collars and open our minds as JSC shuttles you to Light Bar. Here we participate in a Global TEDx Audience as well as interact in real time. Bring all your tech. toys because we are going to use them!

* HEAR the Message! – Dr. Todd Sands will enlighten you on how technology is closing geographical barriers for Windsor. Are you ready for the opportunity?
