In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

L. Carol Scott

L. Carol Scott, Ph.D. will be speaking on “Never Lost Forever.” She discovered the power of a Big Dream during recovery from childhood sexual assault, which had left her with few tools for healthy adult relationships. A career in early childhood development intersected with this personal experience, creating new insights for recovery. Scott’s developmental lens shares tools that enable more trusting, less-conflicted and more joy-filled relationships and interactions, at home and at work. For individuals in any stage of transformational journey, seeing life from the kaleidoscope perspective of early childhood allows you to take your relationships and your life to the next level and leave the struggle behind.
