TED Phenomenon Hits Montreal

November 25, 2010 by Andrea Simmons

Last weekend, the TED phenomenon came to Montreal in the form of Relentless Curiosity, a TEDxMcGill event. The TEDx  program offers communities, individuals and organizations the opportunity to deliver TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDxMcGill attracted nearly 600 attendees, making it the largest TEDx event in North America to-date.

The event was very much in the spirit of TED, a non-profit organization devoted to “Ideas worth Spreading”. It featured a combination of local speakers from the academic community as well as some interesting community speakers. The organizers also aired some select TED talks that fit nicely with the local programming. Ideas discussed throughout the day ranged from stimulating curiosity among managers, through to saving a million lives by spending time online.

INM was a proud sponsor of this session. We firmly believe in activities that foster curiosity and encourage innovation. These two values are at the heart of who we are as a company. INM also shares the TED ideology of bridging the left and right brain functions, blending arts and engineering in all that we do. We also strive to break down the silos and apply innovation in a cross-disciplinary way.

Congratulations to the organizers for putting together a professional and thought-provoking event.
