Our conferences have always been on Fridays. Many attendees have the ability to attend due to flexible schedules. Others take time off to attend. We believe the benefits to attendance far outweigh the drawbacks of not working a Friday. TEDxNaperville is an incredibly rich, experiential, and rewarding environment located locally in Naperville, just a 45 minute train from downtown Chicago. It’s full of networking opportunities, disruptive ideas, and areas for employee development.
