TEDActive is all about connecting with new information and new people to learn and plant the seeds for projects with a big impact. To help stimulate attendees and start turning the wheels on all those latent ideas, we've planned some great workshops on a host of different topics.
These pre-conference workshops will take place at a beautiful desert location that's a magical experience in itself. Once there TEDx organizers and TEDx lead Lara Stein will break down how they plan the ever-increasing TEDx events, Rives will share what it takes to prepare a speaker, TEDGlobal Director Bruno Giussani will reveal what it takes to create a TED conference, Partnership Director Ronda Carnegie will talk about the delicate balance of cultivating sponsorships and June Cohen, TED.com's Executive Producer, is coordinating a social media workshop where several different experts will come together to give a comprehensive understanding of the latest developments in online interaction. Later, back at the Riviera, our TED Prize team will explain how they advocate for the huge wishes of our Prize winners.
