TEDxHerndon 2017: Difficult Conversations

The great secret of succeeding in conversation is to admire little, to hear much; always to distrust our own reason, and sometimes that of our friends; never to pretend to wit, but to make that of others appear as much as possibly we can; to hearken to what is said and to answer to the purpose.
— Benjamin Franklin

TEDxHerndon is an independently organized TED event based in Herndon, Virginia. The speakers are innovators, leaders, and social changemakers with great ideas worth spreading. The theme of this year's event is "Difficult Conversations". Not all of the Talks will relate directly to this theme, but you can expect to hear ideas related to how we communicate, how we collaborate, and how we think about the future. This is our 3rd year hosting TEDxHerndon, and we have gotten better every year. This year promises to be the best TEDxHerndon yet. This is an exciting community event for people in Northern Virginia, but we welcome anyone from anywhere to join us. Our full speaker lineup can be viewed below, and tickets are available on Eventbrite at the link below. We hope you'll join us!
