TEDxNaperville 2011

Good Happens

November 11, 2011 – Grounds for Hope Cafe, Lisle

A play on “shit happens,” our theme this year touched on all the good that happens right in our local area, with speakers including Red Bull Air Force founder Othar Lawrence, archaic artist and musician Thomas Negovan, and famed Momtrepreneur Jill Salzman. We also migrated to the Grounds for Hope Cafe, a venue that offered truly unique, high-tech multimedia experiences for audiences up to about 400.
