Halyma Speaks at TEDxOttawa

TEDx Ottawa: Tracey Vibert – Creativity Abounds – December 6, 2009

I had the biggest pleasure of being a part of Ottawa’s Very First TEDx event!  It was amazing!

See my first post here about it for more of my enthusiast response to being welcomed into the fold!

Plans are already in the works for another great event by the organizers of this TEDxOttawa event so I am looking forward to helping out again in the future!

More videos are going up as you read this, so be sure to check Youtube for more TEDxOttawa clips!

TEDxOttawa – Wow, I’ll be a part of it!

Click here to go to the LIve linkIt has flown by – weeks of preparation and meetings for the main organizing team of TEDxOttawa will culminate in the all day event taking place this coming Sunday, December 6th, 2009.
When I offered myself as one of the speakers, I was prepared for a sweet but polite, “we’ll let you know.. “as they waited to see what well known, public figures, famous or at least semi-famous folk they could fill the list with before a – “thanks, but…”

Instead, I got an amazingly enthusiastic response from the committee and was blown away to be considered worthy of not only helping out [ I also offered my services as a “backstage” crew/ ” stage manager” type minion for the day] at the FIRST TEDxOttawa event EVER! And they are giving me stage time too!

AS the event is sold out, the best way to get involved is to check it out live all day long on their streaming page.  Yes, you will be a few seconds behind the real action, but you can also simply watch in your PJs, with a group of friends, or in a cafe with internet service!

The program for the day will not be pre announced, but you’ll want to start watching right away at 10 a.m. { hint, hint} and just keep ‘er running in the background all day – there will be some amazing talks I am sure!

I am really looking forward to the entire day, being part of a great new community of folk who I am enjoying getting to know!

If you watch on Sunday, leave me a “you were fabulous” comment here on my blog, kay?
