Meet the Team

TEDxMemphis is organized by local nonprofit New Memphis with the support of a small committee of TED enthusiasts. New Memphis -- an organization that develops and activates local leaders -- believes the Memphis community is rich with innovative ideas and extraordinary talent. TEDx gives this talent a magnified voice and invites our city together to spark conversation, share forward-thinking solutions, and hopefully inspire collaboration and action.
