“This was an experience that was profound. Having a venue with so many ideas and coming from so many various backgrounds, occupations, histories, etc. is exciting. The possibilities of outcomes from this event and any like it are endless. I only hope that TED continues in our area and everywhere.” – TEDxNaperville 2010 Attendee
Our inaugural TEDxNaperville in 2010 was held in Wentz Hall at North Central College. The event was a roaring success with over 200+ attendees, 8 speakers, including C.I.O of Argonne National Laboratories Charlie Catlett, and a performance of over 14 students from the Naperville Central High School Drumshow.
