We believe there is greatness inside everyone—a desire to make a difference in the lives of those closest to them, in the lives of people in their community, and in their own life. Everyone has the gift of greatness to share with the world.
We also know there are times when we get in our own way; maybe it's fear, self doubt, or lack of knowledge that keep us from going out there and sharing our light. The first annual TEDx Colorado Springs wants you to Choose to Start! No matter how small the first step may be, choosing to take that step is the only way to make the change you want to see. We hope to spark in everyone the desire to Choose to Start!
For the first time in our history, Colorado Springs will host an extraordinary gathering of world visionaries, advanced thinkers, and creators to the first annual TEDx Colorado Springs. The event features fifteen groundbreaking lectures from opinion leaders in many diverse fields discussing topics that range from eating healthy in a toxic world, to downsizing your lifestyle, and the experience of competing in the toughest bicycle race on the planet.
The event theme of Choose To Start brings together speakers who have taken personal initiative, faced incredible challenges, and chose to start something incredible.
“These incredible speakers have turned their greatness into focused action. We want our audience members to feel that same spark and have it ignite their own inner greatness.”Dan Cichello, Managing Director TEDx Colorado Springs
