Join us October 14th for inspiring ideas, unique experiences, and conversations that matter.

Speakers Include Internationally and Nationally Recognized Experts
in Artificial Intelligence, Neurobiology, Robotics,
Climate Resilience, Education, Human Connection, and More!
Give yourself the gift of a day dedicated to deep connection, not only with ideas, but also with one another. TEDxJacksonville’s 11th annual conference will take place October 14th. It’s a daylong event curated to stimulate dialogue through engaging talks and session breaks designed to give our city’s intellectual explorers and cultural creatives a platform to meet and share important ideas.

This year, we’re returning to WJCT Studios, a site that has fostered some of our most compelling conference moments. Our theme, Human/Nature, is intended as a meditation not only on the incredible richness of being human, but also on the intimate — and interdependent — relationship between humanity and the natural world. The impact that human actions have on nature is as self-evident as the impact nature has on us.

The conference features ten remarkable speakers, multiple engagement activities, and dynamic performances from hip-hop legends 95 South, singer-songwriter Jesabel, and spoken word performer LoveReigns.

The conference will take place October 14 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Tickets are $135. A limited number of student tickets will be available for $70. (Prices include all ticket fees.) Conference registration opens at 10:30 a.m. All tickets include the full conference experience, delicious lunch options, and admission to the AfterGlow party (5:30 – 7:30 p.m.), which features hors d’oeuvres and adult refreshments.

TEDxJacksonville 2023 is more than just an event — it’s where ideas come to life. Come be a part of it! Tickets to the conference are on sale now. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and are likely to sell out quickly, so grab your ticket today.

Speed Networking – Culhane’s Irish Pub

Monday, July 26 at 5:30 PM
Culhane’s Irish Pub, 967 Atlantic Blvd, Atlantic Beach, FL

What we’ll do
Speed Networking for your business at Culhane’s Irish Pub Atlantic Beach!

TIckets at: http://MixItUpNetworking.Eventbrite.com

Connect one-on-one with 15-25 other business professionals though a series of 3 minute mini-meetings.

Make new contacts, generate referrals, establish new Joint Venture relationships, acquire leads and customers and make new friends.

Tips on How To Speed Network Effectively
• Take plenty of business cards.
• Be gracious. Allow the other to speak first unless he or she defers.
• Exchange business cards with everyone. Sometimes, ways in which two people may be beneficial to each other are not immediately apparent. Having a business card allows for the opportunity to follow up with additional questions.
• Make quick notes on cards collected as reminders of what was interesting about a particular person. It will make follow-ups easier.
• Don’t forget to follow up. Too many times people make a great connection and then fail to follow through.
• After the event, make note of what worked well and what didn’t. Consider how to change your presentation to make it more user-friendly and more persuasive.

Register at http://mixitupnetworking.eventbrite.com

The cost is $10 if you register and pay in advance, $15 if you pay cash at the door and includes free light appetizers and open networking between 5:30 and 6:00.

Sunday, September 6 to Wednesday, September 30

The 2020 Atlanta Journal-Constitution Decatur Book Festival presented by Emory University, one of the largest independent book festivals in the country, has announced that the event will be completely free and virtual this year, beginning on Friday, Sept. 4, and continuing through Sunday, Oct. 4.

This year, the virtual culinary program pays tribute to African American cookbook authors and food writers. Culinary Conversations presented by Whole Foods Market will feature nationally-renowned food historians, chefs, and food and beverage writers.

Toni Tipton-Martin is the festival’s “cooknote” author; she will participate in a four-event series called Jubilee Talks, a nod to her 2020 James Beard Award-winning cookbook, Jubilee: Recipes from Two Centuries of African-American Cooking.

The culinary track also includes The Grande Dames of Southern Cuisine, a panel featuring three acclaimed southern chef authors – Virginia Willis, Nathalie Dupree, and Belinda Smith-Sullivan – as well as a conversation with James Beard Award-winning mixologist, Brad Thomas Parsons, and food photographer Battman with his book in photographs of 100 black chefs, Toques in Black.

Other featured chef-authors include Alexander Smalls (Meals, Music, and Muses: Recipes from My African American Kitchen) and Adrian Miller (The President’s Kitchen Cabinet: The Story of the African Americans Who Have Fed Our First Families, from the Washingtons to the Obamas).

In all, the Decatur Book Festival will feature an outstanding lineup of more than 40 nationally recognized authors, poets, and illustrators, including 15 of the festival’s most notable past presenters, in a series of curated panels.

The Decatur Book Festival’s virtual format, along with a slate of special events, will make the month of September feel as much like the traditional festival as possible.

All events are free and open to the public and will be available via Crowdcast, an app that is free to download. Sign up via the festival website: https://www.crowdcast.io/decaturbookfestival

During the festival events, books will be available for purchase via partner booksellers, who have been an integral part of the festival since its beginning. Booksellers are: A Capella Books, Brave and Kind Bookshop, Charis Books and More, Eagle Eye Books, FoxTale Book Shoppe, Little Shop of Stories, and Tall Tales Books.
