Thoughtful Truth Program
Welcome to TEDxMoncton: Thoughtful Truth
Over the next few hours, prepare to hear a range of talks from remarkable speakers. They are researchers, authors, teachers, entrepreneurs, and visionaries. They will take you on an emotional and intellectual journey. Each of our speakers have been carefully selected from a large pool of applicants to ensure that you experience a night to remember. We are humbled by the amount of speaker submissions this year which made the selection of speakers very difficult. In alignment with our objective to focus on ideas, we made our choices and are excited to present to you this year's line-up.
In the spirit of TED, our speakers have been challenged to give the “talk of their lives” in 18 minutes or less. There are no keynotes, no podiums, no panels, and no Q&A. You will see a combination of videos and live speakers arranged to spark deep discussion and connection with the audience. This interaction is just as important as presentations by speakers on stage. We encourage you to actively participate during the intermission and after the event to allow great ideas and solutions to emerge.
Our organizing committee has been hard at work since winter to bring this event to life. We faced our share of challenges, but have been nothing short of amazed by the sense of community and support that Greater Moncton has to offer. Tonight, we will celebrate the best and brightest of our city and share ideas.
We’re glad you chose to be a part of this incredible event.
