Tedx - Ideas for Tomorrow

If you have been paying attention to my social media feeds, you know I recently did a TEDx talk.

What is TEDx you ask?

The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.

Oh wait Chief what is TED?

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

I did my TEDx talk at TEDxSalinas. My particular talk was about - Loving Your Fellow Man - A Police Officers Perspective. I theorized that when an officer dons his/her uniform before their shift, it is a act of love for humanity. But you can watch it for yourself, right here and draw your own conclusions.

My friend Michelle Serna was the curator of TEDxSalinas. She has a lot of experience with TEDx talks. She was a fantastic curator for TEDxSalinas.

I would do it again in 2 seconds. I've already thought about what I would talk about (I've narrowed it down to "Cowgirls are dangerous" and "The New Paradigm in Law Enforcement Communication with the Public").

We are but five weeks about from the San Benito Saddle Horse Show & Rodeo. I am excited for this years show. New clown, improved vendor area but also all of the traditional stuff is still intact. The only thing this year is no parade on Thursday of the week of the show. That will come back next year bigger, better and really way more fun ( I know because I am on the committee and we met yesterday afternoon).

Ticket and other info on the San Benito Saddle Horse Show & Rodeo can be found right here

I'll talk to you all soon,

Be good to each other,
