Testimonials

Enlightening speakers. Entertaining, informative, and thoughtful!

I love learning from people’s experiences! Very uplifting and hopeful 🙂

It was a thought-provoking and engaging afternoon. Many topics and ideas were presented and it allowed people to connect and communicate with one another. The world needs more TedX in their lives.

Honestly it was an absolutely incredible experience. I loved every minute, even when I was stressed out and terrified, I knew it was such a cool part of life that I’d never regret. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity.

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!

This event was the most influential and confidence building TEDx I’ve attended. Many of the speeches helped me and made me feel better about myself.

I have already told everyone I’ve seen how incredible they were.

I had such a great time at this thought provoking event! I wish I would have gone to the prior 3 years. The event was well organized and moved quickly. All the talks were great and I took something away from each one. I definitely felt inspired when I left the event!

It was an interesting and thought provoking experience that was well executed by the organizers.

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.

Celebrations of our community talent will always be a winning idea.

It was great experience with lots of fun information and ways to change your life!

I found every speaker engaging and relatable, and there was a diverse range of topics covered. I will definitely return next year.

It was an amazing show and all of the speakers were great! Very insightful!

This was out first experience with TEDxIdahoFalls. We enjoyed all the speakers and gained much food for thought.

I enjoyed all the speakers, they were moving and inspiring. These talks will help me both professionally and personally.

I originally questioned my commitment when I discovered that it was going to be a 4 hour endeavor, but when it ended I couldn’t believe it was already over. I felt very enlightened and thought they put on a great show.

The TEDxIdahoFalls talks were amazing. My son and I attended and really enjoyed all the talks. There was a great variety. Can’t wait to go next year.

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.

I love the idea that I can find apolitical and areligious discussions on our society. The speakers were excellent and their ideas were definitely worth sharing.

I had never been and after being there, I decided I was going to make this an every year event. When I bought my tickets I thought I would not last the 5 hours and would just sneak out – but that thought quickly left. The talks were very interesting and diverse. Great evening.

I really enjoyed he speakers and ideas that were presented. The opportunity to network was valuable.

It was seriously amazing. They put together a great group of speakers and an evening that was truly memorable and meaningful.

It was an amazing experience. I felt that everything was well organized and the speakers were wonderful. I will be going back next year and bringing anybody with me that I can.

The event was very well organized, with exceptional speakers!

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

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

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.

I began the event not sure if I’d stay the full 5 hours. I stayed the whole time and it flew by. Every talk was inspiring and insightful. I’ll be back with my wife and others next year. Sign me up!

Everyone should be exposed to a wide variety of thoughts and perspectives and TEDxIdahoFalls is a great way to do just that.

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.

TEDx IF is absolutely amazing! You can feel true passion. Each year seems to get a bit better even though you totally can’t imagine that it could. The organizers are outstanding.

I am already a big fan of TED Talks! The TEDx event in Idaho Falls did not disappoint it was run very professionally and smoothly. I think having an annual event like this really adds value to our community, I can’t wait for the next one!

I loved it! I’ll be back, for sure! Real people sharing real experiences! Awesome!

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 gets better every year. The speakers are engaging and interesting, and the topics though provoking. That it is held right here, for such a modest price, is fantastic.

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.

I love all the ideas….. I want more.

The TEDxIdahoFalls talks were great and it’s so nice to hear unique ideas about improving our communities and our lives!

It was so inspiring! I will definitely go again.

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.

I loved how inspiring and organized this event was. I felt like a VIP.

All talks result in some new ideas, new perspectives, or new information that evokes thought.

TEDxIdahoFalls is such a great event and I am beyond thrilled that we are able to have one in our area!! I tell all my friends about it because absolutely everyone can benefit from the ideas shared – I just love it!!

I absolutely loved attending TEDxIdahoFalls. The speakers all inspired me to have meaningful conversations after the event, and to think a bit more about each topic. I was never bored with any topic and the entire evening flew by. Great job, and great flow! Thanks.

Ideas worth sharing. For sure. Some funny, some sad, some took a completely different direction that I thought they would. The time flew by!

Great speakers, professionally managed. I have attended all four TEDx events in the Idaho Falls area and all have been terrific.

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!!

The event was spectacular. Everyone was enthralled by the speakers. We left on an intellectual high.

I have attended TEDx Idaho Falls on two separate occasions and each time I do, I leave feeling thoroughly enlightened. There is no better feeling! Any and all who feel the same way I do about learning ought to attend.

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.

It was our first time and we loved it. We went away with new ideas and great thoughts.

I think the topics are timely, sometimes surprising in what they impart, and over all very interesting, entertaining and informative. Good job everyone! Wish I had the ability to give a talk.

TEDxIdahoFalls is great — we heard a lot of interesting people talk about their passion — we’ve already told several people they should attend next year.

Fantastic event. Organized extremely well, excellent speakers.

The conference was a great uplifting experience. The speakers were fantastic and very well prepared!!

I love the event. It always motivates and inspires me. I have been coming to the Idaho Falls event since it began 5 years ago, and plan to continue coming each year.

I loved the event! It was affordable and such a great experience. I think more people should know about and participate in TEDxIdahoFalls events.

Every speaker had a message for me. I enjoyed it very much! Thank you.

Well organized, great mix of topics and speakers. Fun, engaging event.

The speakers were passionate and the topics were timely for our day.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the presentations. There was a great variety of topics.

The Tedx talks open up your mind which allows you approach the world from a different perspective.

I learned a lot of different things and appreciated the variety of content, along with quality of speakers and overall program organization.

Two of the talks have had a major, life changing impact on me. My husband and daughter attended with me and we continue to talk about the messages to keep it in our minds.

Having the opportunity to see/listen to some of the most interesting and/or smart people in our community – priceless!

It was great! Speakers were all motivational. I really enjoyed being in a big room with people who were also looking for a boost of goodness.

The speakers were interesting and varied. The event was top notch!

I left inspired by people grown in the same soil as I.

I came away more curious, enlightened, encouraged, and motivated than ever. I won’t miss it again!

I always need encouragement and inspiration in my journey to become a better human being. I found both at this event.

I love hearing from the different speakers and learning new things from them.

Very well done. Enjoyed the talks very much. Would love to go again next year.

The event is very interesting, very intriguing, and is extremely worthwhile. I found the event to be entertaining and to provoke thought. In my book, this is a win!

I loved it… I love hearing others ideas, especially when it can evoke emotion (mainly laughter). I want my friends and family to experience this… That is why I chose 10!

It was well done. It was invigorating. I would highly recommend it.

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.

This was my first time attending a TEDx event and it exceeded all expectations. Hearing the different speakers and ideas were refreshing and eye opening. I can’t wait for next year.
