It’s the Saturday before the start of TEDSummit, and while the conference staff are prepping and speakers are rehearsing, a few of the tribes gathering this week in Banff got things started a little early.
The TEDx Global Forum, an advisory group of TEDx hosts from all over the world, met up on Saturday to think on big questions about the TEDx program … and where it can grow next.
Our TED Fellows also started the conference early; TEDSummit brings together past fellows from many different years, so they took time to reconnect at a dinner Friday night, then rehearsed their talks on Saturday morning — then took a gorgeous hike.
