2015 Emerging Leader of the Year

TEDxPeachtree is excited to share that our own Erico Mattos was named 2015 Emerging Leader of the Year by the Georgia Bio Association. Georgia Bio is the private, non-profit association whose members include pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies, medical centers, universities and research institutes, government groups and other business organizations involved in the development of life sciences related products and services. This award honors young professionals for outstanding contributions to the success of the Emerging Leaders Network (ELN) and the growth of Georgia’s life sciences community.

Erico spoke at TEDxPeachtree 2014 about the use of biofeedback in hydroponics to allow plants to monitor their own sunlight exposure. We had the wonderful experience of hearing and seeing a demonstration of his work. Erico cofounded Photosyntex in 2013 and the Emerging Leader of the Year Award celebrated his success there as well as his presentation at TEDxPeachtree. We are thrilled to have shared the stage with Erico and wish to congratulate him on this accomplishment!

Taking Time for Thankfulness

In the fast pace in which we live and work, it can be difficult to slow down and notice the beauty that is around us. And, during the holiday season, this is even more evident. Already our stores are filling up and work is piling on as we rush so as not to miss out. What if the key to thankfulness is actually slowing down? Would we actually experience more pleasure than in trying to do it all?

Louie Schwartzberg uses time-lapse photography to show nature’s stunning ability to stop us in our tracks, if we would only pay attention.  Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at TEDxPeachtree. Experience the beauty around you and say “Thanks.”

Team Connections at TEDxPeachtree

Each year, we are excited to meet outstanding leaders and their teams who attend TEDxPeachtree to connect with others and inspire their staff. This year, we were grateful to get to talk with Linda Beyea after the event to hear about her experience.

 

I lead the innovation program at the American Arbitration Association. While our organization has existed for 88 years, we recognize the importance of changing and adapting to better serve our customers. Looking at trends and developments in other industries is a powerful way to stimulate ideas for innovations in your own industry. TEDxPeachtree is the perfect opportunity for our Atlanta Innovation Team to hear the ideas and experiences of several outstanding speakers from a variety of backgrounds.

Connection and conversation are key to nurturing innovation, and the TEDxPeachtree event allows our team to connect with like-minded people we might not otherwise meet in our day-to-day business. Our team regularly seeks opportunities to get out of the office and into the field to open our minds and gain fresh insight into how we can better serve our customers. TEDxPeachtree had been on our wish-list for a field trip, and we knew that we would be inspired!
