Marketing Committee Volunteer

I volunteered for the first ever TEDxManitoba and was in charge of all the copywriting and content strategy. 

 

For about eight months I worked as a member of the TEDxManitoba Marketing committee. I created a content plan and all copywriting to help spread the word about the event. This was a very fun project, and I became obsessed with the brand guidelines and getting the TED voice perfect.

I poured countless hours into carefully communicating everything about TEDx to attract speakers, sponsors, attendees, and viewers of the live stream. I blogged, I wrote speaker bios, I wrote philosophical rants about our theme, emergence. I explained the difference between TED and TEDx, and managed the delicate topic of "why only 100 people get to attend". 

It was a fun challenge that led to a few great opportunities and friendships.
