TEDxTemecula 2019 Speaker Lineup Promises Elevated Experience
Seven local futurists and storytellers to deliver TED-style talks at eighth annual conference
"We're delighted to bring this conference to the region for its eighth consecutive year," says Jim McLaughlin, Organizer, TEDxTemecula. "We're never short on finding local visionaries with bold ideas. This year is no exception."
The talks given at the annual TEDxTemecula conference are intended to spark curiosity and challenge the audience's ideas around global topics, from education to technology to the far-flung regions of the universe. The event aims to inspire, entertain, and elevate conversations in the region.
The 2019 speakers include:
· Mary St. John-Putnam, Author, Instructor: Mary enjoys combining her strong science and software development background with her quirky sense of humor to translate complicated technical concepts—with the goal of making them more accessible to everyone.
· Leonard Szymczak, Educator, Psychotherapist, and Writer: Leonard has been on the vanguard of men's health in Australia and America for 35 years. An educator, psychotherapist, and award-winning author of four books, he directed a Family Therapy Training Program in Sydney and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University.
· Pablo Thomas Mora, Professional Kid: Pablo has been home-schooled both in America and abroad. He has a love of learning that drives him to embrace struggle and do more work than is expected or necessary. He is currently working with the Temecula Entrepreneur's Exchange to develop a company that sells authentic international meal kits. He studies architecture, writing, and artistic anatomy at home.
· Don Miller, CEO of Crosswired Science, Director of Wonders Science: Don teaches kids fun, deep science in local cities, Temecula being one. He recently created a new online science program. He worked with the VP of Apple computers from which he began a grassroots push in science with each of his 8 kids joining in the pursuit.
· Sarah Hoggan, DVM: Sarah has worked as an emergency doctor throughout her veterinary career. She feels her most important task as an emergency doctor is translating the medical diagnosis and clinical situation into a more understandable context for the family so they can make decisions feeling empowered instead of overwhelmed.

· Jason Reid, Serial Entrepreneur, CEO Coach, Author, and Documentary Film Maker: Jason has been married for 26 years and is the proud father of four amazing children. Jason lives his life with passion and focus and believes that ordinary people can (and do) change the world.
One conference attendee said about past speakers, "Their stories were personal, touching, heartfelt and ran the gamut of human emotions and experience. We laughed, we cried. We lived the human experience through those experiences of these same speakers. The young ones, the mature ones. All were very touching."

A separate ticketed event, the Speakers Reception, will be held immediately after, featuring time to engage in conversation with speakers and enjoy local Temecula Valley wine and charcuterie provided by E.A.T. Marketplace.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, often in the form of short talks delivered by leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED conferences, including our annual gathering in Vancouver, as well as TEDWomen, intimate TED Salons and thousands of independently organized TEDx events around the world. Videos of these talks are made available, free, on TED.com and other platforms. Audio versions of the talks from TED2019 will also be published to TED's podcast TED Talks Daily, available on Apple Podcasts and all other podcast platforms.
