Past Attendee Testimonials

A Breath Of Fresh Air

Because it is a fabulous event, one of the very best in Idaho Falls. Extremely well organized, the talks are super well rehearsed, and the ideas innovative. A breath of fresh air for me.

Social Media At Its Best

This is social media at its best. Some people want to hear about issues they may never have thought about straight from the “horse’s mouth” and it engages them without feeling pressured.

Excellent Topics

Excellent topics and I like the delivery platform promoted by TED.

Well Done

This event was very well done. Great speakers and well-organized. It was fantastic having an event like this in our community.

Larger World View

It’s excellent to hear from topics I might not otherwise know much about, or viewpoints that might be slightly different from my “assumptions” looking from the outside. I think it’s important for my teenagers to be at these, because I need them to have a larger world view than they might have growing up in a “smallish” city.

We Spent The Rest Of Our Evening Talking

My husband and I love Ted talks, and we were not disappointed by the TEDx event in Idaho Falls. I believe one of the main purposes to any TED talk is to encourage a conversation and share information about new topics, ideas, and solutions. We spent the rest of our evening talking about the subjects that were talked about with friends, family, and each other.

Speakers Were Very Motivating

The speakers were very motivating. I really enjoyed Stephany TaylorSilva’s story about her life and what she has done and is doing to help her over come the battles she went through. I really look up to her, I know if she can do great others like her can do great things also.

An Amazing Idea

I think Tedx is an amazing idea in and of itself! People are becoming more aware of another way of life, and without all of us being able to share our words, we may not understand how to try these new ways in our lives. It

Can’t Wait To Go Again

This was an awesome experience! Speakers were wonderful and I can’t wait to go again.

I Was Wrong

This event exceeded my expectations. I love listening to Ted talks via the podcast app. I wasn’t expecting the local event to have as high of calibre speakers and topics as national talks, but I was wrong. I left the event feeling inspired and better informed.
