Last But Definitely Not Least.

The process of finding speakers for TEDxRenfrewCollingwood is not an easy one – and is fairly different from most conferences.  We don’t start with people who are speakers – we start with people who have ideas.  Through a process of applications, auditions, conversations, crafting, and rehearsals – we try our very best to help them articulate their ideas with confidence and clarity to you, our audience.

We think that all our speakers are amazing – not only for what they do, but for being willing to work so hard to share it publicly on our stage.  We are proud to present to you the final four speakers of TEDxRenfrewCollingwood 2014:

Bryn Davidson – LEED-accredited building designer, sustainability consultant and small business owner.
Geoff Davenport – Team builder and business strategist with a passion for renewable energy.
Jimmy Lin – Genomicist, 2012 TED Fellow and founder of Rare Genomics Institute.
Robin Horner – Activist, Grade 10 student and game-changer.

So, there you have it folks – fourteen people who are crazy-passionate about what they do.  Fourteen people who – after we asked really, really nicely – are going to tell you all about it, come October 25th!

To take a bit of pressure off the speakers – and to give the audience time to process and chat and have a bit of fun – TEDxRenfrewCollingwood also has great performances, workshops and activities for audience members to get involved in, and a great array of food and drink to keep your mind and body in good form.

Come join us at TEDxRenfrewCollingwood 2014 – October 25th at Windermere Auditorium.  Ticket sales are open until October 10th.  Be sure to purchase yours today on Eventbrite, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates as the event approaches.  Thanks!
