You may have heard of the ever popular TED Talks. TEDx is a part of this phenomenon. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to discuss ideas worth spreading. TEDxLugano operates in the Italian speaking town of Lugano Switzerland. I worked with TEDxLugano to create a cohesive, compatible and innovative team of 9 people. Together we selected the conference theme - Future Wealth. From there I worked closely with our Speaker’s Curator to select and curate unique speakers ranging from politicians, to economists, to magicians, to dog trainers . I also edited the TEDX Lugano website to ensure it was grammatically correct and easy to use for our international audience. My biggest task included managing the organization of the conference day timing by creating a minute by minute excel spreadsheet. To accompany that I was also in charge of risk management and handling any event-day emergencies that arose. Together with my talented team members, we produced a successful conference that sparked conversation and curiosity while also connecting the international community in Lugano.
