I am thrilled to tell you that as of September 9 2011, TEDx NY weekly salons will take place at the S space every Friday at 5pm!! The salon is a place for the NYC community at large to gather, watch some of the most intriguing ideas worth spreading TEDx NY has to offer, then discussing. Each Friday, the group will watch a 20 minutes video and then turn our chairs to circle for a 40 minutes conversation, led by one of TEDx NY facilitators.
TEDx NY Weekly salons are free of charge and are open to the public. Saatchi & Saatchi highly encourages all employees to join this inspiring initiative and invite others to do the same. Special thanks to Neal Foard, Milano Reyna, Mary Baglivo and Kevin Roberts for helping to make this happen.
