Steven via his TEDx events gathers the best ideas from the best minds across the globe and local communities., TEDx events seed greatness via ideas and thoughtful conversations. We plant and seed amazing ideas into fertile minds, hoping to grow a kinder, more loving, and compassionate world for today and our grandkids of tomorrow.

Be all you can be

We are living in the best of times and the worst of times. There is beauty and opportunities all around us. And, there are significant challenges as well. But, the world is ready to shift to a new era of consciousness and a more enlightened way of finally living peacefully together on this big blue heart in Galaxies yet to be explored.

We know that when one cannot provide for their family, a society cannot provide for its family. When one child goes hungry, all children in this interwoven fabric of society are hungry. When one woman is abused, society is abused. But we also know that the seeds of greatness are in each of us, and through inspired ideas, we can, and will create a vibrant and flourishing world. Become a part of TED. Be all you were meant to be!
