The speaker lineup for the 2017 TEDxZumbroRiver is comprised of insightful local and national speakers with a variety of backgrounds, each with a different perspective of this year’s theme, “What’s Possible?”
Let’s meet Ayodeji Awoskia.

With his passion for ideas and a bright outlook for the future, he hopes to usher as many people as possible into the new era of a more connected and creative world.
Asked a few interview questions about his experience with the 2017 TEDxZumbroRiver, he had this to say:
Why did you want to be a TEDxZumbroRiver speaker?
I’ve always been a big fan of TEDx. In a time where I needed direction in my life, TEDx talks were pivotal in helping me make a positive change in my circumstances. I wanted to have the chance to be able to give that gift to someone else. Admittedly, I also thought it would be extremely cool to be able to say I’m a “TEDx speaker.” Not gonna lie.
Describe your TEDx talk in three words
We need you.
What do you hope the audience walks away with from your TEDx talk?
I want the audience to walk away with the intent to take action. I don’t want them to simply say, “That was thought-provoking.” I want them to use what I’ve said as fuel to do whatever it is they know they need to do deep down but aren’t yet doing.
What are you most looking forward to as a presenter at TEDxZumbroRiver?
I’m looking to meeting and learning from interesting people. Great ideas come through collaboration, so I’m sure being in a room with a diverse array of people will make for, not only an interesting evening, but also a learning experience that will benefit everyone involved for a long time.
