If you are a fan of TED Talks and the associated TEDx events, good news!  May 5th Boise will be hosting TEDx at JUMP, and feature 14 presenters sharing their ideas for change.

The concept is that the presenters each bring a concept or realization that could inspire change in the world.  The TEDx events aren't officially run by the TED organization, but observe the same concepts and purpose.  Attendees have referred to the event as human exploration and inspiration.

The Boise TEDx event this year received hundreds of applications, but the speakers were narrowed down to the 14 selected for the year.  Each presenter has some support leading up to their big day, as they work with coaches to prepare.

If you are interested in being a part of the TEDx Boise event this year, you can find more by visiting their website HERE.  It will begin at 1 p.m. on May 5th.
