TEDxIIT 2012 is about Ideas Worth Sharing that celebrate the forward progress of evolving and thriving in life. Gaining Momentum is about living each day with purpose and passion. It’s about doing the things we truly want to be a part of and less about what we’re expected to do. Prioritizing, navigating, and continuing to move forward no matter how relentless life may seem only yields good things. TEDxIIT 2012 has a dynamic list of compelling speakers that have done just that.

When momentum gets shifted to slow and sluggish, motivation often wanes. It’s in these times that our lives seem to work against our every desire. To continue moving forward in adversity, is where the shift begins. Last year we broke through. This year we build momentum. We are creating a world of possibilities. Will you join us?

TEDxIIT 2012: Gaining Momentum is free! You may visit the TEDxIIT website at www.tedxiit.com. Our FAQs should answer any questions you may have.
