Last year’s conference was a huge success. Twelve outstanding speakers – including Mark Brand , owner of Save on Meats; Riaz Meghji , co-host of Breakfast Television, and Alexandra Samuel , Director of the SIM at Emily Carr University – told their stories of Going Against the Grain to a highly interactive audience. Our conference was a Twitter trending topic in Canada by noon!
This year, we want to focus on you. More specifically, how YOU can design your own path, bring YOUR ideas to life, and take action. With Make It Yours , we want to help you cultivate your passion by hand-picking speakers that will motivate and empower.
As we embrace the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDxSFU is increasing the conference capacity to 400 seats . Attendees will be a veritable collection of forward-thinking individuals including SFU students, alumni, and faculty, as well as artists, activists, and business professionals from the wider community.
Interested in attending? The application process begins late July.
