TEDxStanleyPark Brings Ideas To Action Back To Vancouver

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 11, 2016 /CNW/ -- TEDxStanleyPark is proud to announce their 3rd annual multi-speaker event happening on May 28, 2016, from 10am to 6pm at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver. The name TEDxStanleyPark was chosen to capture the spirit of Stanley Park – both the park and the event stimulate, inspire and energise their visitors. The theme of TEDxStanleyPark is Ideas to Action.

"Our theme is Ideas to Action. This theme is born from our belief that all human achievement has 3 sources: the dreams that we dream, the choices that we make, and the actions that we take. And the most impactful of these is the actions we take. Our Ideas to Action theme has guided our selection of talks to those with powerful calls to action that give legs to dreams of what could be," says Roger Killen, Producer, TEDxStanleyPark.

The vibrant speakers at this year's event come from all walks of life from entrepreneurship, business, technology, and finance to religion, social and humanitarian work, advocacy and healthcare. Some of this year's dynamic talks will focus on such intriguing topics as:

  • Fuelling Your Why
  • Fixing Racism
  • The Sexless Marriage
  • Why Don't Great Ideas Succeed?
  • Be Different and Proud of It
  • Is There A Slave in Your Food?
  • Deathbed Lessons
  • Children for Sale

TEDxStanleyPark does not hold its events in gymnasiums or classrooms, but in quality theatres. The 2016 venue is the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in downtown Vancouver. This theatre has 2,640 excellent seats in rows with a generous rake to provide good sight lines and great acoustics that enable guests to hear every word. The Queen Elizabeth Theatre has been home to countless award-winning productions.
