As a member of the TEDxNashville board, a consultant for the Speakers’ Committee and the Chair of the Engagement Committee, I was afforded the opportunity to attend TEDActive in Vancouver and Whistler, Canada.
While there, I gained many fresh insights and a renewed appreciation for all public speakers and presentations. On my first day in Vancouver, I was one of the few people granted access to watch the TED speaker’s rehearsals. Many aspects of this experience blew my mind, especially watching TED curator Chris Anderson coach and challenge Alan Eustace on his TED talk just a few days before he spoke.
