What’s XNet President and TEDxNaperville Curator Arthur Zards doing this week?
Arthur was invited to attend the TEDxSummit in Doha, Qatar hosted by the Doha Film Institute. The TEDxSummit is a four day workshop where 650 TEDx organizers from around the world meet to take classes and learn from one another how to make great local TEDx events. The summit features a variety of world-renown TED and TEDx speakers that will open the conference with their powerful and inspiring TEDTalks on April 16th. Following their talks, TEDx organizers will begin learning how to make truly powerful events.
So how does this relate to TEDxNaperville? When the TEDx curators from around the world meet this week at the summit, they will be sharing lessons and good case practices of everything from stage design and finding speakers to increasing interactivity and inspiring attendees. Arthur will be taking classes and learning from other amazing TED and TEDx organizers, which we will implement in TEDxNaperville 2012 in November. Furthermore, Arthur will be leading an educational session on building engagement, which other TEDx organizers will use to better their events.
Additionally, Arthur has created a blog to share his incredible experience at this event and his travels throughout Qatar. To see what he is doing, visit powerofx.posterous.com.
