The TED licensee and Executive Producer of TEDxMarin is Bob Ayres.
TEDx began as a grand experiment. The program has been embraced with passion and dedication by hundreds, if not thousands of volunteer communities across the planet.
Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading”, the TEDx program was designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. Events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. TEDx events are open source, local and community-driven events that inspire innovation, thought leadership and visionary insight. Each TEDx event has their own name and organizational team. All TEDx events follow guidelines for content and formatting established by TED.
