As a way to spread ideas and spark conversation, Bryant University will be hosting its sixth annual TEDxBryantU event Saturday, February 25th, from 2:00-5:00 PM. TEDxBryantU will bring together faculty, staff, students, alumni, and guests to discuss a variety of perspectives on this year’s theme: Reboot & Refresh. A panel of eight diverse speakers will offer fresh perspectives on what “Reboot and Refresh” means to them pertaining to their personal life, professional life, or a time of adversity in their life that has made them into the accomplished individual they are today.

Reboot and Refresh is a period in time where we as individuals need to reflect on how we are going to adjust to the innovative, reinventive, and encouraging environment that is today’s society. It is a time of modernization where we are in charge of creating our own paths both professionally and personally.

This year’s speakers:
Emily Cisek ’11
Jaime Diglio ’00
Steve Fiore ’96
Mike DiBenedetto ’26
John Scott ’23
Louise Barro ’23
Professor Robert Massoud
Professor Kristen Falso-Capaldi

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBryantU, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBryantU event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
