My name is Ed Hutchinson, and I am the marketing chair for TEDxPurdueU. This Saturday from 12pm to 4pm TEDxPurdueU will be hosting a TEDx conference in Loeb Playhouse that will include seven different TEDx talks from eight different speakers from Purdue, Greater Lafayette, and all around the country.
The theme of the event is “Ikigai”, a Japanese concept that translates to “a reason for being.” Each of the seven talks will touch on the central theme while focusing on a variety of different topics. For more information about the event, visit our website at https://tedx.purdue.edu/ or follow their Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
