More People You’ll Meet at TEDxManitoba

It’s not just the speakers that will make TEDxManitoba a day to remember. It’s the dynamic of the ideas being shared, discussed and spread. We decided that this year, we were going to make it as easy as possible for our attendees to connect and discuss both at the event and in the months to come. Over the course of a few posts, we’ll be posting profiles for those who agreed to do so, and we hope it helps keep the conversations going and the ideas spreading. So here they are, the attendees of TEDxManitoba 2012. Find more here.

Not one of the 100? Catch the live stream!

It’s a reality we genuinely wish we could change. Only 100 guests are allowed to attend TEDxManitoba in person on February 9th, and that application process completed in November. We really do wish we could have a bigger, in-person audience, but these are the rules we have to follow.

Thankfully, that doesn’t mean you can’t take part on February 9th!

Thanks to livestream.com, TEDxManitoba will be available to everyone online in real-time. Whether you just take in a few talks or the full day, watch it alone or gather a group, it’s really simple. Just log on to our homepage on February 9th. The live stream will be here for you.

Want to plan out your day in advance? Check out the complete schedule.

Several workplaces, including Investor’s Group and Great West Life, are setting up boardrooms with our live stream available to their employees to watch, and there are schools throughout the province setting up space for their students to watch along. Are you setting up the live stream in your office? Let us know in the comments below.

In addition to TEDxManitoba in the school and workplace, we know of at least two viewing parties in Winnipeg that are open to the public:

The University of Manitoba’s Graduate Student’s Association is hosting a viewing at 530 Drake at the Asper School of Business and will be open to anyone who wants to drop by. So if you are a student or faculty at U of M and want to catch some (or all) of the talks, it should be super easy to catch at least some of the day.

McNally Robinson Booksellers has a fancy new Community Classroom that seemed a natural fit for a TEDxManitoba viewing. They do have the morning booked with one of their classes, but have graciously offered to stream our event in the afternoon, so feel free to stop by, grab a coffee at Prairie Ink, and take in some of our afternoon talks there!

If you know of other viewings taking place or would like to host one yourself, be it in a coffee shop, pub, boardroom or classroom, please let us know in the comments. We would love to list it here and find ways to connect with you on the day of the event. The more people, the better.
