Are you Ready for TEDxKanata 2017?


Located just west of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; Kanata is a hub of captivating people with extraordinary ideas. In addition to its fascinating, talented community of thought leaders, Kanata North is also Canada’s Largest Technology Park and home to world-class companies like Mitel, Halogen, and QNX, to name just a few. It is the perfect landscape of business, innovation and entrepreneurship, rich in heritage and opportunity.

At TEDxKanata last year, there was tons of excitement, social media buzz, and over 275 attendees at the extremely successful, sold-out show, not only did TEDxKanata have everyone reflecting on the question of the night: ‘What does the concept of “Breaking Barriers” mean to you?’ but it also firmly established Kanata as a collaborative and inspired community that is paving the way for Canada’s future.

 This year on March 9th 2017, we are doing it all again! We are thrilled to host our 3rd annual  TEDxKanata with another lineup of exceptional Speakers who will grace the stage with Ideas Worth Sharing! This years theme for the event is in line with Canada’s Celebration of its 150th anniversary of Confederation.  The 2017 theme “The Next 150: Driving Change” is all about the thoughts, ideas and predictions of what the next 150 years may bring!


 As presented last year, eight speakers will take to the stage including John Weigelt, Amy Karam and Melanie Coulson, who have all been announced as Speakers at this years event in the newsletter and on the TEDxKanata Blog.  For more details about their profiles, sign up for the TEDxKanata newsletter or visit the blog on the website.  Over the next few weeks, watch for more announcements about the other Speakers who will join us on March 9th, 2017.

We look forward to an evening filled with captivating talks and fascinating ideas that will be shared with a diverse group of 300 individuals who we hope will be inspired and ready to “Drive Change” for the Next 150 Years!  Follow TEDxKanata on social media and engage in the conversation.  Subscribe to their mailing list to stay up to date with news and announcements about this year’s incredible lineup of speakers!
