It’s here. You’ve waited all year for this day. You’ve followed the speakers’ Twitter and Facebook feeds, Googled them, checked Wikipedia, and maybe even followed them on Instagram. These educated experts will be speaking with passion and insight into their areas of focus, ready and willing to share their ideas.
There is only one problem…you can’t attend the event in person. Your dream of applauding your favorite presenter after he or she finishes speaking seems out of reach now.
But, wait, our creative team has a solution! Thanks to technology, you can watch live, right along with the audience inside of the Buckhead Theatre on October 17. Check out the TEDxPeachtree Live Cast which will be streaming the talks live beginning at 9:00 AM EST.
But, why stop at watching by yourself. Consider shining the light on local talent in Atlanta and illuminating new ideas by throwing a TEDx Peachtree Viewing Party. We thought we’d make a step-by-step guide to get you pumped for the big day.
- Invite some friends to watch with you.
Atlanta does community really, really well; we know you have lots of awesome friends and neighbors in your community. What a great way to engage co-workers, neighbors, and friends this Friday, by inviting them to take part in 6th annual TEDx Peachtree event.
- Prepare yourself for making October 17th a Brain Gain Day!
