ENGAGE: Intentionally Salon

ENGAGE: Intentionally Salon

Explore a different way of building community through deep, intentional dialogue. In the process, discover how we can help shape our sense of purpose either individually, or collectively as a city.

Our three speakers sparked our imaginations with their talks, sharing both perspectives and tools that our participants could use to engage other participants in a set of deep conversations about what YOU think we need to change about our dialogue on community. We immersed ourselves in interactions with other equally curious Calgarians, helping us generate a new and far-reaching conversation about how we define our purpose.

This event featured live speakers. Please visit our Speakers page to learn more about them!

Videos are in production... stay tuned for further news on release dates!

Navigators [2018]

Navigators [2018]

Their ideas are taking us to new places.

Navigators are those special people who are pursuing the next wave of opportunity in technology, science, health, and energy among others. They are tackling big problems that need equally big thinking about solutions. And, they are helping us to explore ourselves and our time in history. Their perspectives guide us, inform us, and inspire us.

On November 3, 2018 our sixteen exceptional Navigators joined a sold-out group of more than 400 participants for a full day of deep insights and dazzling performances from the stage, matched with thought-provoking interactions in our participant engagement zone -- where our participants shared their own ideas with others who are equally curious about the world around them.

This event has concluded. Videos of the speaker talks are completed and available through the TEDxCalgary YouTube channel, or see an individual speaker's profile.

Truth(s) [2014]

Truth(s) [2014]

The second of our main events for 2014, "Truth(s)" explored the depths of what truths we hold to be important. From new dinosaur discoveries, to making the health system work, and understanding the depth of pain being suffered by our Aboriginal communities through the loss of missing and murdered Aboriginal women, our speakers and participants spoke from the heart.

Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now [2010]

Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now [2010]

It's where we started in 2010, with "Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now" as our first event. We explored the linked themes of conflict, poverty, youth and elders at our very first TEDxCalgary event, and featured speakers like Naheed Nenshi, Nick Nissley, and many other courageous speakers who believed in what we were doing, and lent us their talents on stage.
