Charleston TEDx brings inspiration, performers to Music Hall – The Post and Courier
Randy Dobbs’ 31-year-old daughter found out after giving birth that she was in stage four of pancreatic cancer. Instead of succumbing to the idea that her chances of surviving the disease were small, Dobbs put his former experience in the business world to good use, and tried to formulate a team of people who would help her survive.
That was the theme of Dobbs’ talk, one of the last ones that closed out TEDx Charleston, now in its third year. For those wanting to attend this year’s event, with the theme “Embrace Chaos,” getting holds of tickets was quite the competition: the 500 tickets available for the gathering, held at the Charleston Music Hall, were gone in under 12 hours, said spokeswoman Kira Perdue.
