At TEDxDetroit, optimism and energy had love affair with the
mere possibility of what could be…. so invigorating to see such diverse groups
of industry specialists come together in one forum for the simple goal of
collaboration and sharing ideas.
TEDxDetroit is the perfect combination of music, lecture and
poetry in motion. The take away from this year’s conference was, the importance
of asking questions, but an even greater lesson here, is the importance of
listening to the answers.
It doesn’t matter what your industry or your job is, to develop
the most relevant, thoughtful and impactful solutions…LISTEN.
Connection, empathy and collaboration of the generations are
crucial to our success in developing our ideas fully.
Continuing to challenge ourselves, to lose our assumptions,
watching our world change as we look below the surface for what might not
immediately be seen.
Josh Linkner urged us to let go of past and present, not
play it safe and seize the greatness of other opportunities. Be bold and grow.
Veronika Scott describes
Detroit as the “Wild West of Creativity.” If you have a dream and it is not
here yet, you can make it.
Greatly missed from the event was David Blair who was an
award-winning, multi-faceted artist: poet, singer-songwriter, writer,
performer, musician, community activist and teacher. He never fails to inspire.
Simple. Right? Dream, wonder, let go, listen and grow.
Anything is possible!
