TEDxToronto 2015 Announces Second Round of Speakers

At TEDxToronto, our mission is to seek out people with ideas worth spreading. In the spirit of this year’s conference theme, Thresholds, we have curated a lineup of speakers and performers whose personal stories and professional achievements will expose you to thrilling new perspectives, and evoke powerful emotion.

From a young female aerospace engineer identified as one of Canada’s rising leaders, to a man who has saved countless lives as a hostage negotiator, and an inspirational speaker who was personally selected by Richard Branson as one of Virgin’s “10 Most Inspirational People” – we are proud to present our second round of speakers.
