Introduction

The introduction of TEDxRosslyn to the city heralds an ambitious vision that embraces action, ideas, and people to develop the Rosslyn story for the 21st century. This is an explicit effort to align our hometown with the mission of “ideas worth spreading”. TEDxRosslyn is a gathering of thought leaders and heads of industry that are using bold ideas and innovating methods to reshape our city and the rest of the world. Following the TED template, TEDxRosslyn fulfills its mission by creating dialogue and lasting connections. TEDxRosslyn will be a cumulation of in-person talks from amazing speakers, recorded videos from the official TED conference, and time and activities for the attendees to connect to each and hopefully create lasting relationships.
