It was my honor to be part of TEDx Tampa Bay for the second year in a row. As part of the team that produces the event, I have been able to work with people who are passionate about the community and the spirit of ideas and engagement represented by TED. This year I was also privileged to be one of the speakers at the event.
I have spoken around the world but I will say that TEDx was one the most pressure packed presentations I have ever given. The tight format is part of it but mostly it is the pressure of knowing you are part of the global TED community. The global audience for these talks is an amazing array of people who are also doing extraordinary things. This is a group that you want to impress and I hope the ideas contained in it are worthy to be part of that global conversation!
