“I was totally flabbergasted, loved every minute of it! So much food for my brain, so much inspiration, so many wonderful people to talk to during the breaks! Can’t wait till the next TEDx event! — Attendee, TEDxRotterdam
The holiday season is upon us, and the TEDxMaui team is celebrating the addition of three new presentations from Maui speakers to the official line up for our 2012 event, being held on Sunday, January 22, 2011 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
