Events

Events Committee manages TEDxSFU's day-of logistics and helps to bring the "TEDx experience" to life for our audience! We coordinate with the entire team regarding pre-conference event(s), day-of, and after-conference activities, prepare itineraries for all TEDxSFU related events, and communicate with AV staff. To help create the best guest experience we also recruit and manage a small team of General Ambassadors, who help with engaging with our audience among other responsibilities!
