TEDxLeonardtown will take place on September 9th, 2017 at the Leonardtown High School from 10am-3pm. The independently organized event, licensed by TED, will feature local voices and TED Talks videos under the theme of “Creating Change Locally”.
TEDxLeonardtown is the first ever TEDx event to be hosted in Southern Maryland. Speakers will be sharing their personal and professional beginnings that sparked an organizational idea to make a difference in the world, by starting locally and influencing their direct community. Creating Change Locally recognizes and supports small businesses, entrepreneurs, and creative minds that want to make an impact locally and globally.
On the driving motivation behind the event, Lead Organizer Becky Shaw says “TEDxLeonardtown allows us to showcase some of the community members’ work and provide a stage to share Southern Maryland’s local change creators with the rest of the world, through the TEDx YouTube channel.”
