Can you see yourself standing here?

The Red Carpet at a TEDx event is reserved for those calling out for change. The call is to go, do great things, be better than we’ve ever shown ourselves to be.

But those on the Red Carpet have but one instrument, the transforming power of an idea. The spotlight may be on the speaker, but the focus is on the idea. 

The speaker must transmit the idea with fidelity and integrity, handing it as a gift to the audience, to unlock and call forth the best from all who encounter it.
