Past Attendee Testimonials
Some talks were captivating. I love that people in our area get a chance to share their goods ideas- everyone has something worthwhile to say! It was well organized and carried a tone that made the event feel legitimately TEDish.
TEDxIdahoFalls was an amazing experience! It was my first in-person experience with TED and I loved it. I will hopefully be back next year!
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.
I have been a spreader of TEDx for 2 years now for several reasons. First because I fully embrace the philosophy of TED. In addition, I have been impressed with the quality of the event itself in Idaho Falls. It is a well-organized and smoothly run event. This year I learned more about the speaker selection and training process. It is equally impressive.
I have already told everyone I’ve seen how incredible they were.
I enjoy listening to the speakers and the ideas presented. One would not necessarily know about the ideas, experiences and life lessons that we share with each other without forums such as TED. I am grateful to all those who take the time in their busy lives to organize and present TEDx Idaho Falls. I recommend this to all who ask about TED. Thank all of you for your hard work and dedication!
All of the speakers were very well prepared, and presented fascinating material in a compelling way.
Having the opportunity to see/listen to some of the most interesting and/or smart people in our community – priceless!
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’s a wonderful thing!!
I loved how inspiring and organized this event was. I felt like a VIP.
