TEDxCharleston is now accepting applications for speakers and performers for its 2015 conference.
Last November, State Street (STT) introduced a new team-building exercise: The financial-services company hosted its own TED event, modeled on the conference series that promises “riveting talks by remarkable people.” While TED speakers have included big names such as Bill Gates and Sheryl Sandberg, State Street drew upon its own pool of about 30,000 employees. “We had people from all geographies and all levels of the company,” says Hannah Grove, State Street’s chief marketing officer, who came up with the idea.
When I walked into TEDxCharleston yesterday I felt like I was on a movie set. Those big red and white letters, the red carpet onstage, and a room full of energized people. I was transported inside my computer screen, and participating in the TED movement in the flesh. The lunch room in Memminger Auditorium housed buffets of food, long community tables, and the buzz of inspired conversation. The day’s “Ripple Effect” theme was palpable in the 600 attendees’ bright faces and gesticulations.
