TEDxAmerican Riviera 2012 Readies an Unthinkable Lineup of Speakers
What happens when executive producer Kymberlee Weil and her crew of “out-of-the-box” thinkers brainstorm the theme for this year’s TEDxAmericanRiviera to be held Nov. 11 at Bacara Resort & Spa? They derive a theme so unusual, so uncommon that it’s Unthinkable.
“This year’s theme, The Unthinkable, gives us permission to dive deep into topics that are often taboo, yet relevant to our everyday lives,” said Weil, “We’ll explore topics that are as deep and scary as near-death experiences and as sexy and alluring as our erotic selves.”
This year’s power-packed speakers guarantee to challenge participants’ beliefs and opinions. The speakers, through their own experiences and expertise, will entice the audience to take notice of those things that they often think but rarely say and to empower themselves with this newfound knowledge.
