One year ago a team of ten enthusiastic volunteers came together to bring TEDx to the Bentonville community. Inspired by the tremendous growth and change currently taking place in Northwest Arkansas they have worked to create an event that will explore these very ideas, provide a forum for differing perspectives, inspire conversations – and ultimately, new action at the individual, organizational, and community levels.

An impressive list of local speakers is lined up for 10.11.12 to cover different facets of the Becoming theme, ranging from Business/Education, to Arts/Culture, and Environment/Sustainable Growth.
