    Help me next level my career move from kitchens to event management — Ted Talk Please!

  41. Jennifer Fichter on May 20, 2022 at 12:19 pm

    What an incredible looking event. I want to learn and grow as a person and gain skills and information I can share to help others. Potentially this is a nice event to meet friends and or have follow up gatherings or talks with others to continue to grow on the topics discussed.
    I’m a single mom and a low paid front line worker who lost her business in the pandemic…. I can’t afford to buy my own tickets at the moment.

  42. Kelly Bastos on May 20, 2022 at 12:55 pm

  43. Tony on May 20, 2022 at 1:54 pm

    As a manager of a small company, I always listen to Ted talks to get better and improve the company and how we do business for both employees and our customers. Seeing this in person would be fantastic, plus music and Suntory, well now that is a game changer!!

  44. Glen Gilbert on May 20, 2022 at 1:56 pm

    I would love to go to this. What a great lineup. I’ve never been to a TEDx but watched many on their channel. THis looks fantastic.

  55. Molly Harvis on May 20, 2022 at 5:59 pm

  56. Amber Gravel on May 20, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Ted talks leave you feeling inspired.

  57. April on May 20, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    I’m going though an extremely rough divorce. Something that helps my kids and I get by is the weekly recommend TED talks that i get emailed. I can’t imagine how truly amazing it would be to attend in person. I have such a love of learning!

  67. Esther Gabrielle Rosengarten on May 21, 2022 at 10:19 am

  70. Charlie Y. on May 21, 2022 at 4:04 pm

    Between the talks and the live music performances this would be like compressing at least 3 months worth of social activities into a single day… Incredible

    I really need a bit of light on this darkness, and this would cap off my trip to Portland in a spectacular way. I would take my teenage daughter to inspire her.
