The first annual TEDxUW-Stout took place in October of 2015. The preparation for the event was about a year long of coordination of volunteers, speakers and event promotion. Mary McManus, the founder of the event, asked if I would help brand, promote and learn the process it takes to hold a TEDx event.
EDGE was the theme of the 2015 TEDxUW-Stout: Explore, Discover, Grow, Engage. The presenters were prompted to speak about ideas worth spreading from fun in the work place to engaging students in the classroom.
Initially, I was in charge of branding the event and designing the website. With the help of the Memorial Student Center Design Team and supporting volunteers, we produced an event with signage, hand outs, presentation slides, staging and more.
