On October 26th, the TEDx Akron 2012 “Unexpected” Conference brought forth powerful speakers with life-changing ways of thought. These individuals each shared their different views, stories and experiences all under one roof.
TEDxAkron, a local initiative, is a branch of TED (www.ted.com), where over 900 of the world’s greatest thinkers and doers share their insightful life experiences through “TEDTalks”.
Their moniker “ideas worth spreading” is exactly what they did at the conference, sharing what one local homeless shelter for women and children is doing to empower every client that walks into their building.
