TEDx Coconut Grove is at Ransom on Friday

Nelson Dellis, speaker
After months of planning, TedX Coconut Grove is happening this Friday, September 28 at the Lewis Family Auditorium at Ransom Everglades. The program is from noon to 9 pm. 

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Speakers include Nelson Dellis, a memory champion and Alzheimers activist. He has developed a passion for memory training and has noticeably improved his memory.


Producer and Musican Emilio Estefan is also a spearker, also Thelma Gibson, Nurse and activist; physician Joe Greer will speak, he is founder of Camillus House. Best selling author and trail attorney James Grippando will speak and the list goes on. 

The Introd to TEDx is at noon and then speakers will begin starting with Greg Cooper, a Ransom teacher who teaches US History and US Government. They will go on until 6 pm, when there is a dinner break, from 6 to 7:30 pm. Then the speakers will go on from then until 9 pm. There are four sessions with the dinner break in between.

You can see the full list of speakers and schedule and purchase tickets here. They are close to selling out, so there will be no onsite sales. Adults are $50 and students $10. This includes admission to all four sessions and includes dinner, which is provided by many local restaurants.
