TEDxOrlando Salon: Using Business as a Force for Good
July 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$28.45
At TEDxOrlando, we believe that ideas are the tools for positive change in the world. We get up every day to create a platform for people to share ideas that matter with people who want to make a difference.
This Event’s Why.
As society progresses, there has been a noticeable shift in the type of businesses that are taking off and thriving. It seems the market today is demanding that companies not only meet their initial needs but also be intentional about making the world a better place while they are at it. The intention of this event is to explore this shift and hear powerful ideas around how to harness it.
