This was such an approachable, economical, accessible way to ‘fill the well.’ As a writer and creative consultant, I am always looking for ways to learn and be inspired. I will be a regular participant in TEDxNaperville.

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.

I did not realize that networking was built in as part of the event; it was surprisingly fun to meet people for the sake of meeting people and not being at a networking event.

It’s food and water for the garden of the mind. It connects people with new ideas and perspectives, which is my passion.
