“Innovation comes from people meeting up in the hallways or calling each other at 10:30 at night with a new idea, or because they realized something that shoots holes in how we’ve been thinking about a problem.” –Steve Jobs
Are you ready to take part in the creation of a culture of inspiration, creativity, and innovation on Maui? For over ten years, TED has been a platform for sharing great ideas with the world and has hosted some of the most brilliant thinkers of our time. In that spirit, we have been hard at work cultivating a TEDxMaui program featuring both locally and globally renowned leaders that exude infectious passion and energy. We are thrilled to announce the following additions to our program.
