In April of 2013 I had the good fortune of being the staff co-chair for TEDxWesternU. The event involved mentoring a group of ten students from Western University in all aspects of planning this live event.
The event took place in Western’s beautiful Paul Davenport Theatre and was livestreamed to the world. The speakers included: award-winning Film Director, Barbara Willis-Sweete (The Red Violin); Writer, Producer and Director, Rob Stewart (Sharkwater); international designer Andrew Lewis; and Sikorsky Human-Powered Helicopter Prize winners, Todd Reichert and Cameron Robertson. Our on-demand video content following the event has had more than 123,000 viewers.
