Last night I had the opportunity to attend TEDxDayton's post-event celebration at the NCR Country Club in Kettering. With over 50 people in the room, several people who have helped make TEDxDayton possible over the last 3 years were in attendance. Nothing short of expected, the organizers arranged a wonderful event.
It was great to see speakers' videos from the event for the first time, and I was also pleased (and not surprised) to hear that they are already ramping up for a TEDxDayton 2016.

Our team had the pleasure of attending an amazing event in the community - TEDxDayton. A small group of speakers were selected to give talks on a wide variety of topics, all embracing the theme "Re-" : Rethink, reflect, reevaluate, and so on.
Gary gave an informational and engaging talk on the origin of insights to an audience of over 1,100. Although we may be a little biased - we all agreed that the talks were nothing short of TED-quality. Videos of each talk will be posted in the upcoming weeks on tedxdayton.com (click on the image to visit the website).
