A Personal Invitation to TEDxMileHigh 2017: Point of Departure

By Jeremy Duhon / Categories: / June 16, 2017

Be prepared to think differently. Get ready to explore your next point of departure.

In a world of conformity, 24-hour news cycles, and unoriginal ideas, come join 2,400 of the most inspired Coloradans on July 7-8 for a unique experience where ideas come to life. We’ve assembled 22 extraordinary doers and thinkers, each of them ready to deliver the “talk of their life.”

This is a chance to put your phone on airplane mode, disconnect from the noise that surrounds you, and reconnect to the shared feeling of being truly alive. Come laugh, cry, dream, connect, and inspire yourself and those around you.

This is your opportunity to wake up to what matters most and boldly create your future. What lies ahead for you? What are you most passionate about? What is the single best use of your time in this one precious life you have?

TEDxMileHigh 2017: Point of Departure represents that moment in time when you audaciously launch toward a new direction, and leave behind the limiting beliefs of your past. In doing so, you harness the power of momentum and creative energy. Bold, new ideas categorically change how you see the world and how you move through our lives. With this change come new observations and perspectives of the world around you. On July 7-8, through the power of ideas and authentic connection, you’ll explore your next point of departure.

Please share this invitation with friends and colleagues who are committed to spreading big ideas and promoting inspired citizenship within the community. Click here for tickets.  Additional information on the speakers and experience are included below. I hope to see you at the event.
