On Friday, September 20, 2013, TEDxNavesink: The Next Wave will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m at Brookdale Community College Performing Arts Center at 765 Newman Springs Road in Lincroft, N.J. The Conference will bring the world-leading TEDtalks mission to Monmouth County for an all-day live event where speakers and attendees discuss the future of the New Jersey Shore’s people and landscape.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives, including TEDx where local, self-organized events bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, live speakers and TEDtalks combine to spark deep discussion and connections among the audience.
At TEDxNavesink 360 attendees will experience 24 live talks and 100 minutes of live and pre-recorded TED material from the TEDxCity2.0 conference taking place at Times Center NYC and around the world in major cities.
The day’s schedule is available online. Speaker highlights include:
