Doors open at 8:00am
This labor of love that we call TEDxCharlottesville is upon us in t-minus 24hours. The speakers are prepped, the stage is set, and the volunteers are ready! All we need now is you. We are checking off our last minute to-do’s and we thought we’d share some reminders with you too. Here is your list:
1) If you’ve ever seen a TED Talk then you know the dress code is more of a casual meets business casual vibe. Nice jeans are ok but sweats are not. A button shirt is ok, but a suit and heels are probably a bit much. Feel the vibe? We want you to be comfortable but also be prepared to network and meet new people as well.
2) We are SOLD OUT so that means get there early to check-in, grab your swag, then find your seat. The doors open at 8:00am and the program begins right at 9:00am. Unfortunately, not being in your seat when the first speaker begins means you are watching it on the small screen in the lobby until their talk ends. Small screen = not so good.
3) Like with all TED events and talks, Bring an Open Mind. There will be many great ideas shared from the stage along with the discussions you’ll have with your fellow audience members. Come ready to enjoy, get inspired and then take your new thoughts out into the world and create change.
4)**If you are on social media, use #TEDxCville on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter (etc.) We will be posting and tweeting throughout the day – let’s just make it a social media party. (Thank you)
There is so much going on behind the scenes from our 60+ volunteers, to our speakers, to our Steering Committee – all for the event REFLExIONS tomorrow. We can’t wait to see you, seeing/hearing our speakers, inspiring you. Did you follow that? A reflection of you to us back to you again. Ok Cville, time to get ready! See you tomorrow!
