22 May How-To TEDx
Whether this is your first TEDx experience or you were at a previous event, there are a few tricks to activate the TEDxPittsburgh conference experience.
- Meet your neighbors.
Look around. You’re surrounded by people from a variety of backgrounds, but linked by the common theme of curiosity. TEDx is a good place to find out what others in the region are working on, thinking about, and being inspired by.
- Download the Activate: TEDxPittsburgh app.
An interactive agenda with space to take notes on each speaker, links to our past talks, and a live Twitter stream are at your fingertips to help you stay connected during and after the event.
- Take notes.
We’re going to publish today’s videos soon, so they’ll be yours to access and share. But there’s something about the way a talk affects us in the moment, in person. A quick jotting down of keywords or phrases in the app or on a nearby notepad can be an easy way to retain the ideas long after the curtain drops.
- Take action.
Ideas are one thing. Action is another. May this event be a small reminder that whatever challenges we face as individuals or as a community, can be faced head on. Let the talks of the day and the conversations at the breaks mingle with your own ideas and set them in motion. Even a small step forward is a step forward.
