What do you do at TEDxCanberra?
I basically run around on the day of the event. I help with the attendee check-in, usher attendees into the theatre and assist in anything that is needed.
Leading up to TEDxCanberra 2011 I will be calming the passionate and obsessive husband of mine (Steve).
The TEDxCanberra Crew in 2010 were amazing and the 2011 Crew are just as brilliant. Bringing people together who have never met and then can come together so easily as a team to make an event successful; as a human resource professional it is always beautiful to see.
What would you talk about during a 3-minute TEDxTalk?
How can we, as a community, help children who are in families that are not as privileged some, and who are struggling to survive?
They may be children whose parents have been on long-term unemployment, have a health issue, etc. Yes, there are many organisations to assist with this, but what can we as a community or individual do? If children are our future how do we help those in need to be as successful as they can be? How do we help them dream and be inspired – particularly if it does not happen in the home?
Why would I talk about this? When I was growing up this was my life and it only took one individual and their family to show me a different possibility.
