Welcome to those of you who are visiting my website for the first time because of the TedxYoungstown 2015 event taking place January 23, 2015 on the campus of Youngstown State University.
A speaker's Dress Rehearsal is going to take place today. And, I'm very nervous about this. I have to tell you that this Tedx talk is the most difficult presentation that I have ever had to prepare. One reason is the time limitation. I have been given 12 minutes to share the best points about Social Media and Medicine. So, condensing my usual 60-90 minute remarks, was challenging, yet fun for me.
The night before the main event will be the Kickoff dinner where the organizers, the sponsors, and the speakers gather. I very much appreciate all the sponsors for the 2015 TedxYoungstown event. I encourage you to check out the sponsors page and show them some love.
Friday's TedxYoungstown 2015 event will be available via live video stream at this link. There were some technical struggles last year, but I know that they have been working on this. And, I think their use of the livestream platform will do them well.
For my fans out there, I'm scheduled to speak at 3pm Eastern Time on Friday, and you can check that out at the live video link. I challenged myself to use zero slides, and I have been able to do that. We'll see how that works out.
I'll be posting to my various social media accounts, like this website, twitter (including my almost 20,000 followers), Facebook, and instagram. I'll be using the twitter hashtag #TedXYo and also follow the TedXYoungstown twitter account and Facebook accounts for updates before, during, and following the main event!
