Truman State University’s first TEDx conference, TEDxTrumanStateUniversity, is just two weeks away, and we couldn’t be more excited. TED is an internationally acclaimed, non-profit organization that hosts conferences around the world. Their conferences feature a variety of speakers who give short, powerful talks about their unique ideas and perspectives.
