TEDx Plano

TEDx was created in the same spirit as the national TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Talks. TEDx supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community. These events are designed to create conversations within communities and organizations. This year’s annual TEDx Plano brought together some of this area’s most interesting individuals that have “ideas worth spreading.”
