This event is open to the public.

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).

Tia Cristy

Entrepreneur
TipsfromTia.com is an award-winning blog. I can tell a story that you'll be compelled to share with someone else... I guess it only made sense that I became a personality and writer. I've worked for Top Major Markets throughout the country as a personality with writing, voiceover and production skills. I've also worked as a journalist and columnist. To add to the career menagerie, I decided to get my boards in nutrition which helped grant me the title, 'Tips Expert'. I developed TipsfromTia.com to share tips on Prevention and Remedy within the topics of Organic Beauty, Health, Lifestyle, Home, and Sexual Health. Being a Jackie of All-Trades, I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. I jump into most things like home renos, DIY, crafts, fitness, hair trends, and much more. (One day, I laid concrete in heels!)
