TEDxOkoboji is a local, independently organized event to be held on Friday, November 22nd at Pearson Lakes Art Center. TEDxOkoboji is being produced by a group of community minded Okoboji residents who are passionate about sharing the mission and experience of TED and TEDx with a local audience. This will be an event that strives to re-create the unique experience found at TED events, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers congregate to share what they are most passionate about. At its core, the fundamental goal of TED and TEDxOkoboji is to foster and spread great ideas. We aim to provide a platform where thinkers, visionaries and learners will be inspired and have the opportunity to inspire others.
