Why spend the day at TEDxSeattle?
Serendipity

Serendipity is defined as the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. It’s a good description of what people experience attending an independently organized TED event like TEDxSeattle. The line-up of speakers and entertainers is curated to bring together a vast range of ideas around a central theme. This year’s theme is Changing Places. The speakers and customized audience experiences are designed to support the mission of ideas worth spreading. Join the conversation on November 18th!
