TEDxEustis To Host Live Conference January 30th

January 21, 2021, Eustis, Florida: The organizing team of the non-profit TEDxEustis conference is proud to announce that the 2021 conference will continue as a live, in person event with appropriate health safety measures in place. The fourth annual event, which is based upon the world renowned TED conference, features 14 speakers and performers sharing their "ideas worth spreading" and takes place Saturday, January 30th, 2021 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. 

“TED and TEDx talks on YouTube already have more than seven billion views,” says organizer Timothy Totten, who recently completed training for a large audience TEDx license for Eustis with his co-organizer, Byron Faudie. “TED talks are designed to provoke conversation and share ideas worth spreading, TEDx conferences are in the same vein.” 

The theme for the 2021 event is "Humanity Reignited," which co-organizer Byron Faudie believes is especially fitting for a world increasingly focused on artificial intelligence and the digital world.
"Our speakers will bring forward ways to reignite our humanity by reshaping the way we treat those in the last days of their lives, re-imagining our relationship with nature and food cultivation, and rethinking the way we use science to make decisions," says Faudie, who will share with Totten the responsibilities for attendee experience and community engagement for TEDxEustis. 
The speaker/performer lineup for 2021 includes:

Anya Berlova, Researcher and Leeds Scholar
Claudia Virga, Author, Speaker, and Creator of CHAT Communication Style
Ellie Salazar, Professional Gardener & Owner of Home Gardeneers
Kat Chrysostom, Author and Founder of Benefab
Jessica Hartman, Reptile Enrichment Coordinator and Owner of Scales and Tales
Jim Enderle, Author & retired Navy Chief Hospital Corpsman
Joe Shaw, Author, Speaker, and Analytics Engineer
Joy Farrow, Safety Advocate and Retired Law Enforcement Officer
Kori Novak, Healthcare CEO, Author, Researcher, and Professor
Michael Rust, CEO of the Winnebago Conflict Resolution Center
Nicole Hassoun, Professor and Author
Patti Hope, Comedian and Storyteller
Sarah Peters, Educator and Co-Owner of Equipped2Learn
While the license for this fourth annual event was increased for 2021, the realities of a global pandemic reduced the number of tickets that Totten and Faudie can responsibly sell, which means the event is already sold out for 2021. However, the videos created at the event will be uploaded to the TEDx global YouTube channel in the following months and available to watch for free. Those interested in adding their name to the waiting list can email tedxeustis@gmail.com

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.) 
About TED TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today's leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED's annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman. 

TED's open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a "wish," or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
