Rick Talks TED

If you’ve never attended a TEDx Greenville event, allow us to talk it up for a minute. It’s a day-long program of polished, yet unpretentious speakers—some from across the country, some from right here in the Upstate. Not convinced yet? These aren’t the kind of speakers that put you to sleep; they’re the kind that wake you up, make you think, make you want to do great things.

Every year, there’s a theme, but interpretations of it are anything but conformist. In addition to the powerful program, there are interactive exhibits all over the building; Vintage Atari games were a hit at our Convergent Technologies station. Sincere thanks to Katie Leckenbusch for her idea and assistance getting the booth together, and congratulations to TEDx Greenville organizer Russell Stall and his awesomely energetic crew of volunteers.

As proud sponsors of the conference, Convergent Technologies’ own crew enjoyed being behind the scenes. TED talks about technology, entertainment, and design. We’re taking it a few syllables further by saying it’s a community-minded, avant-garde approach to business, much like our own. If you think this is an idea worth sharing—or experiencing—pass this along on social media and visit tedxgreenville.com.
