A Message from TEDxFortMcMurray
With just under a month to go before TEDxFortMcMurray, the organizing committee has contacted the presenters and coaches to notify them that the event will now be moved back until February 21,2015.
“This was an extremely tough decision to make,” said Trevor Sheppard, Communications Coordinator
for TEDxFortMcMurray. “But ultimately it was the right one. As an organizing committee we felt that if we were not going to be able to offer the best possible TEDx experience, then we should wait until we are in a position to do so.”
Over the past three years, the TEDxFortMcMurray event has been one of the best TEDx events in the
province in terms of the quality of the event and the production of TEDxFortMcMurray. The organizing committee and participants alike are proud of this standard and intend to continue to produce a high-caliber event for the expected 300 attendees.
“This year, we find ourselves a month out from the event and in a position where we as an organizing committee were not able to satisfy certain internal benchmarks that we feel are critical to being able
to host the event at the standard it deserves,” states chairperson Matt Youens. “Producing an average event is not our vision and we hope our participants expect more from us.”
Tickets for the February date will be announced within the next month.
