September 25, 2020 – Billings, MT – A group of local business professionals will present TEDxBillings, taking place at the historical Babcock Theatre on February 27, 2021 from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m The event will feature 16 presenters from around the Billings’ community who will share their very own “TED Talk” right in our downtown.
TED is an annual event that brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that matter in any disciple – Technology, Entertainment, Design, science, humanities, business, development, and so much more. In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED has granted TEDx licenses for local, independently-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. This year’s theme for Billings’ event is “Inspiration Under the Big Sky: Staying True to our Roots While Developing Our Future.”
Per TED, Inc. directive, there will be only 100 tickets sold to the main event at the Babcock. An additional 100 tickets will be sold for a satellite site, The Pub Station, where the event will be live streamed. TEDxBillings will provide opportunities to engage in meaningful discussion, gain some inspiration, and connect to the local community.
Of the sixteen (16) presenters, four (4) headliners have already been announced and include:
- Tim Pollard, the Founder and CEO of Oratium and the author of The Compelling Communicator
- Chrissy Pratt, Executive Director of Elephation, a non-profit dedicated to consulting elephant organizations on improving the lives and welfare of elephants in care through science and compassion
