Wonder, Rediscovered. Wrapping Up TED2011
We weren’t sure what to expect from our third TED simulcast; September’s TEDxChange was a strangely detached, yet global experience for us, December’s TEDWomen was a very small group, but enabled some fun, intimate and animated discussions; indeed, both events were difficult to promote.
However, like our larger scale, live TEDxLeeds conferences, our TED2011 simulcast was a hit. We sold out around a week before the event with people registering on a wait list; we chose to go with a more informal, “lounge” setting; we encouraged everyone to put their feet up, let their hair down, come and go as they pleased from sessions; indeed, all but one of our guests asked us to extend our schedule from 4pm to midnight!
