TEDxTimesSquare, a collaborative effort of professionals with a strong connection to Midtown and Times Square committed to stimulating conversations, hosted “TRANSFORMATION | DRIVING CHANGE.” The event included speakers from a spectrum of the nonprofit and professional spheres in tech, digital, social entrepreneurship and publishing with a passion for provoking change in and beyond New York City.
All of us encounter TRANSFORMATION: in private, in public, at work, and at play; rapid change is a 21st century constant. This conference imparted new ideas and perspectives, provoked thought and discussion about the nature, opportunities, and difficulties presented by change, how to drive change, and how it can be navigated and exploited.
