TEDxGoldstar with Popchips? Yes, please!
Marni Landes, Social Media and Community Manager, Goldstar; Blogger at www.happygomarni.com @happygomarni I have to give a big Thank You to Jim McCarthy, our CEO, because he’s the reason I am a TED fan. A couple of years ago, when he first started following TED (and by the way, he’s a super-gung-ho TEDster today), he got the entire company’s ears to perk up as he shared interesting tidbits he...

TEDx - A Worthwhile Experience
Lior Shamir, Founder of www.WeAreListening.org, @WeAreListening I’m attending the event on the premise that every TED event is worth attending.
TEDxGoldstar - A Multi-Level Experience
Charity C. Tran, Digital Strategist, Civic Resource Group; Editor/Blogger, www.ExperienceLA.com, @experiencela I believe that the Internet is more than just connections. It’s a place of bridges that cross over the disparate and the similar, revealing the world to be smaller than you think and greater than you can imagine at the same time. Events like TED bring these pathways to the forefront,...

Kelly Ryan O’Brien, founder, www.kellyryanobrien.com, @kellyryanobrien Those of us who are entrepreneurs and trailblazers need each other to keep the train moving. It is amazing to have such access to like minded individuals.

TEDxGoldstar - Bringing It!
Jim McCarthy, CEO Goldstar, www.goldstar.com @goldstarjim I admit it. I’m responsible for all this madness. I started going to the TED conference back in 2008, and I’m an addict, but I like to think it’s one of those addictions that is actually good for you, rather than the ones that cause you to break into your neighbors houses and steal their TVs. Under Chris Anderson’s leadership, TED has...

Caroline Pardilla, blogger of Caroline on Crack, @carolineoncrack Julie Taymor, Bill Gates and Morgan Spurlock sharing their thoughts, philosophies and ideas and I get to be there for it? Yes! I feel so very fortunate for having been invited to watch the TEDxGoldstar simulcast. I’m looking forward to getting inside the minds of these leaders of innovation and am really hoping their smarts...
Mike Turner - Singer Song Writer and Music Supervisor, Audiosocket I have never been to an event like this before and I’ve become fascinated with the TED forum after discovering it a few years ago. I’m convinced that intellectual outlets and symposiums like TED are essential for progressive societies to learn and evolve and avoid becoming stunted with convention and dogma. I think...

Alexandra Spunt – The TEDxGoldstar experience
Alexandra Spunt, co-author “No More Dirty Looks”, @nodirtylooks, www.nomoredirtylooks.com Everything about TEDxGoldstar excites me: meeting interesting and interested people, while getting to hear these incredible speakers. It sounds like a bit of a dream day to me—like school for grownups but with the guarantee of inspiring teachers. I think it’s especially important in Los Angeles,...
Goldstar’s Tommy on TED
Tommy King, Director of Communication at Goldstar @1TommyKing www.goldstar.com I have been really fortunate to be able to dive head first into TED this year - and have it be part of my job! It started out just watching the TED videos online, but once I started meeting other “TEDsters” face to face, it really clicked. Watching TED speakers and presenters in a shared environment and then...
Adam Mefford Interview – Ahhh, TED
Adam Mefford, Founder, Currency TED is like a spa for the brain. I believe the benefit in platforms like TED for leaders in business is the opportunity to refine their concepts and make their vision clear to audiences who are unfamiliar with their subject. Being clear is the first step to being effective, and we all need practice. As far as TEDxGoldstar is concerned, I’d like to meet one new...
Gretchen Schneider - TEDxGoldstar Facetime
Gretchen Schneider, talkTECH Communications @gretawells http://buzzrocketblog.com, www.isawjesusinla.com It’s extremely important for innovators and thought leaders to have a platform - such as TEDxGoldstar - to share ideas. Even attending a small tweet up allows me to think and operate in a more well-rounded manner. So something on this scale really does a lot to shape how we think and...

Meghan Teela, Strategic Planner, Zambezi, Inc. | www.Zambezi-la.com I am a huge fan of anything ‘TED’. I’m excited for TEDxGoldstar not only to hear the speakers, but also to mingle with the other attendees. Sharing ideas is integral to the creative, innovative process. Platforms like TEDx provide an accessible, fun, engaging opportunity to do this. I hope to learn something...
Talia Frenkel - Thoughts about TEDxGoldstar
