TedX Calgary at Festival Hall
Registration is open for the next TEDx event in Calgary and we think you should take a gander.
November 18, 2011
Calgary Folk Music Festival’s Festival Hall - 1215, 10 Ave SE
People in Calgary care and they show it with action.
Calgarians volunteer double the amount of the national average. The city is home to more than 5,000 non-profit organizations. And with a volunteering backbone including 100 years of the Calgary Stampede and almost 25 years of a growing Olympic legacy – ours is a city that volunteers great.
Let's find out if we can volunteer...even better.
Make every hour count better.
Make every effort go farther.
Make every dollar last longer.
TEDxCalgary will act as a catalyst, the speakers will provide the inspiration, you can bring your own motivation and the whole lot of us will leave the room full of determination. We’ll workshop a little, entertain a little and think a lot. By learning from each other's big ideas and inspiring practices, Calgary will continue to lead the country and even the world as the best volunteering community anywhere. Why not aim high?
We’re going to ask a few questions:
What are the most inspiring practices in Calgary’s non-profit world? Think collaboration, think efficiency, think innovation.
How can we identify and support game changers and game changing ideas?
How can we make these ideas happen? Is there something new that needs creating? Is there someone out there already doing this who needs more support?
By learning and adapting, by marshalling resources and by supporting each other, our tremendous pool of volunteers, engaged corporate community and innovative non-profit organizations can accomplish pretty much anything.
Let's do it. Let's volunteer...even better.
And then let’s party...even better. We’re heading to the Ironwood after the last speaker to continue the sharing. If you want to stay at the Ironwood past 7:00 p.m. to enjoy CR Avery & Wil, check out theirwebsite <http://ironwoodstage.ca/> for reservations.
