The theme of TEDxBuffalo 2011 is "No Permission Necessary." Our speakers have changed, disrupted, improved, and sparked new ideas in the fields they work in. Some have built entirely new things, organizations, and movements from the sweat of their brow and the power of their ideas. Most of our speakers just want anyone hearing their message to realize that some great things don’t require a grant, a contract, a factory, or a committee--just a change of thinking.
