Here’s what one of the attendees, Amber Ludeman, at TEDxCharleston 2013 had to say about the event on the Levelwing blog
Social Analyst Amber Ludeman had the good fortune of attending the TEDxCharleston event this week in downtown Charleston. She reports how her day dedicated to ideas went:
The miracle of your mind is that you can see the world as it isn’t.
This is how TEDxCharleston began: an auto-tune video echoing popular quotes from previous talks that the TED-faithful recognized. It was an effective tool for getting the 100 attendees excited for the day before us. The stage lit up and Lee Lewis, our emcee, was introduced. He may be the most enthusiastic person on the planet–at least top five. He was a great touchpoint between each speaker and performer and reminded us why we were all there: to contemplate, connect and create.
All of the speakers and performers had great great ideas and actionable plans to execute them, which was very refreshing. Here are a few of my favorite quotes and points made by individuals:
It’s safe to say that I was wholly inspired by the TEDtalks + musical presentations. It also made me feel great about the Charleston community and the thriving ideas we have here. There were many more noteworthy quotes, but some of the talks were so compelling that I found myself forgetting to take notes!
It must also be said, too, that TEDxCharleston was executed very well. Aside from the positive atmosphere, there was free breakfast, lunch, coffee, cocktails and a handmade gift for every attendee. I appreciated the intimate space and abundance of smiling faces. I definitely want to get involved in the next TEDxCharleston event, as I’m positive there will be one.
