TEDxOshkosh 2017 - Saturday, November 4

We believe in the power of a great thought, the resonation of an idea and the discussions they prompt. A great thought is what led us to create TEDxOshkosh. We invite you to join us at the Grand Opera House to listen to people who passionately believe in their own great ideas, and engage with our community in conversation.

We are curating an assortment of knowledgeable, inspiring and thought-provoking speakers for 2017, and ask them to challenge our perspectives to reveal the unexpected insights that come from looking at things from a different angle.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxOshkosh, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxOshkosh event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
