Your 2015 Spring Speaker Lineup

Today, we are delighted to announce the seven speakers who will be sharing their ideas on the 2015 TEDxCambridge spring stage on June 18th.

An opera singer. A shopfront educator. A distance athlete. A biostatistican. A microbial scientist. A neural nanotechnologiest. An urban futurist. What do these people have in common? Response. Each of them has an idea that can change the world we live in, on scales big and small.

What if our typical responses to…

the daily stressors of life were slowly killing us?
GINA RAZON, OPERA SINGER

education models could be as free-flowing and responsive as the society we need to serve?
SEP KAMVAR, SHOPFRONT EDUCATOR

bad news opened up new opportunities rather than limited them?
KAYLA MONTGOMERY, DISTANCE ATHLETE

wanting to make good decisions leads us to make bad decisions…or none at all?
SEBASTIAN WERNICKE, BIOSTATISTICIAN

curing disease was based on an outdated notion of who (and what) we really are?
BERNAT OLLE, MICROBIAL SCIENTIST

previous failures in restoring lost connections were keeping us from making new ones?
POLINA ANIKEEVA, NEURAL NANOTECHNOLOGIST

the space around us was transformed to consider flexibility, rather than structure?
HASIER LARREA, URBAN FUTURIST

Gina, Sep, Kayla, Sebastian, Bernat, Polina and Hasier have tremendously compelling ideas that are truly worth spreading. We hope that you’ll learn more about them and follow along as we share more about their journey to the TEDxCambridge event stage. Tickets to the June 18th event will be on sale shortly!
