February 1, 2016

On Thursday, February 11, 2016, nine inspiring speakers from the local community will take to the stage at Mount Saint Vincent University for 2016’s edition of TEDxMSVU. 

TEDxMSVU graphicThis year, presenters from a variety of organizations – including the Halifax Regional Police, Sport Nova Scotia, not-for-profit consulting, United Way Halifax, and more – will share their thoughts and experiences  Toward a Better World. Members of the Mount family will also be represented as a student, a faculty member, and President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Ramona Lumpkin, CM are slated to deliver talks.

Last year’s TEDxMSVU was sold out, with 100 ticket holders plus dozens of student volunteers attending. This year’s event is expected to be just as popular.

Mount Assistant Professor and TEDxMSVU organizer Shawn Cleary notes, “We’ve had incredible interest in TEDxMSVU already. I think we have a fantastic lineup of speakers and a great group of volunteers.” Many student volunteers are also involved with the event, providing an opportunity to participate behind-the-scenes and see what goes into staging a TEDx event. 

The TEDxMSVU talks are also recorded and posted later online for viewing.  

Hosted by Peter Harrison of C100 FM, the current line-up of speakers for the evening is as follows:

Tickets for TEDxMSVU: Toward a Better World are available for $20 (general admission) online here, and at the Business & Tourism office (McCain Centre 405). Find more information about the event here.
