Elevating Phx Born Ideas
Inspiring, Encouraging, and Educating
A completely student planned, organized and executed TEDx. This event is run and led by students, all leaders in a specific field, to coordinate a large-scale event. This provides the students with an opportunity to gain real life experience, hone skills while discovering where their passions lie, and to build something great. An opportunity to not only bring the GCU student population together, but also to bring the community of Phoenix together. We will also provide a platform for individuals in Phoenix to finally have a place to express their ideas. Each year we will pursue a more pristine and effective impact, always innovating, always learning, and always moving.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGrandCanyonUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGrandCanyonUniversity event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
