TEDxNaperville 2012

+ (Plus)

November 9, 2011 – Grounds for Hope Cafe, Lisle

Our 2012 conference explored our individual meaning of the symbol “+” and how it factors into our lives with a variety of meanings. Speakers this year included acclaimed musical duo Ian & Ani, theoretical astrophysicist Dan Hooper, and Olympic silver medalist John Coyle. We also began dramatically increasing attendee experience, introducing TEDxNaperville “Adventures”, mentally stimulating adult field trips to local hot spots, the morning of the conference.
