Over 250 TEDx event organizers from over 45 countries met in the California desert on Sunday to discuss the next steps for this already-prolific community. After presentations by TED staff and fellow organizers, everyone dispersed to nine stations for brainstorming sessions on speaker training, PR and social media, university events, youth events, storytelling, sponsorships and more.
After two topic sessions, Organizers broke out into regional groups to build avenues for collaboration and connect on local issues.
