Save the Date: TEDxResedaBlvd Happens November 17, 2019
We are proud to officially announce TEDxResedaBlvd. Save the date for November 17, 2019. The day-long event will feature a luncheon at the historic Airtel Plaza Hotel, speakers and performers, and plenty of opportunities to make new connections.
The theme of TEDxResedaBlvd is CONNECTED. TED and TEDx are renowned for this theme, and we selected it because Reseda Boulevard is a connecting artery in the San Fernando Valley. It spans the area, connecting people and industries. The Airtel is also a connecting hub. Situated on the property of the Van Nuys airport, the hotel was built for the 1984 Olympics which connected Los Angeles with the world.
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 TEDxResedaBlvd, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxResedaBlvd event, TED Talks videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in an intimate setting. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized by volunteers and are not for profit.
TEDxResedaBlvd is organized by Desireé Duffy, founder of Black Château and Books That Make You. The volunteer committee also includes:
Alyssa Barron, musician, writer, yoga instructor and sommelier
Kimberly Blagrove, Writer and Translator
Dave Duffy, founder of Napox Photography
Mary Beth Garber, former EVP of Katz Media Group and President of the Southern Broadcasters Association
Brandie June, writer and actor
Monica Matulich, Senior Vice President of PRHollywood, branding, event production and marketing expert
Flo Selfman, past president of the Independent Writers of Southern California, editor and publicist
Bree Swider, project manager and digital media expert
Dacey Villareal, art teacher and branding expert
