TEDxCoconutGrove speaker lineup confirmed

TEDxCoconutGrove is back next month, taking place on February 6, from 2 pm to 7:30 pm at Ransom Everglades. The popular talks and "ideas worth spreading" includes a big line up of speakers on the theme “Boundaries.  Tickets include attendance to all sessions, snacks throughout the day, and the Tasting Village, sponsored by Merrill Lynch, with selections from 12 local restaurateurs, beginning at 7:30 pm.
The TEDx Program is "designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences."
From the website: "At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED."
Leonard Pitts of The Miami Herald has recently been added to the program. 

This year's speakers are:


Susan Amat - Serial Entrepreneur and Founder of Venture Hive
Mike Becker - Teacher and Coach
