TEDxZumbroRiver is Back and Accepting Speaker Applications!

It’s official. TEDxZumbroRiver returns for a can’t-miss evening of insightful presentations on May 18, 2017, at Autumn Ridge Church in Rochester, Minnesota.

What is TEDxZumbroRiver?

TEDxZumbroRiver is a program that consists of local speakers who each have approximately 15-minutes on stage to present a powerful talk on an idea worth spreading. The event brings together storytellers and speakers with powerful insights on a variety of topics.

In 2016, TEDxZumbroRiver made its inaugural appearance in Rochester where more than 1000 attendees gathered for the one-day event, making it the largest TEDx in Minnesota.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

If you missed last year’s event, catch up with speaker videos and highlights from 2016.
