Mahalo a nui loa for a great TEDxHilo 2012

WOW! Mahalo for the Giant TEDxHilo perception shift! 

Thank you for literally, coming from every part of the island to participate.

TEDxHilo Attendee SnapshotIMPORTANT!
The February 29th TEDxHiloLIVE Event will concluded in an organizational and informational meeting for future TEDx Events. Physical attendance is not required. We’re paying for additional bandwidth to have online, interactive meeting services in place so you can participate using your own internet connection.
There’s plenty interest in holding more TEDx events. I renewed the license for next TEDxHilo event, tentatively scheduled it for April 1st, 2013. Nothing is set in stone. Everything is open to organizer input. We are also expanding into more locations as several attendees have requested TEDx events around the island. We can all help support and have a role in these emerging events.
Special mahalos to the super-accommodating, Caroline from Hawaii Energy for hooking everyone up with LED lights, reusable bags and those awesome “Phantom-Power-Monitoring” surge protectors -how cool! Special mahalos to Cody Anderson at Bolo Graphics in the mall for the TEDxHilo sign and sticker printing. Special mahalos to Nina Tanabe at the Hawaii Innovation Center at Hilo for facilitating TEDxHilo. Special thanks to Laura Kinoshita for ingenious marketing and organizational support.
Special mahalos to Bill Collins for jumping in and offering to take on stage host responsibilities. Also big mahalos to Zion and Molly for taking on the videography and much more. Special mahalos to Justin Avery for delivering some much needed additional video support and more. Also special thanks for a few folks you may not have met, Mati, Doughty Leigh and Rob Williams, who made so many things possible by running me into town around after losing a driveshaft on my truck just days before the event. These are the folks that setup/took down the rooms, loaned their space, equipment, vehicles, in-kind donations, their time and energy and more things that I could ever remember right now.
Mahalo a nui loa kakou
We were all rewarded with an awesome day and I’m sure they would each agree that it was a most rewarding and valuable event for Hawaii Island. I’m certain that I speak for everyone when I say, “we hope you will consider getting involved in future TEDxHilo events.”
Special aloha a lokahi to the other attendees and event organizers who held TEDx events on the same day and everyday of the year.
Thank you again from the bottom of our collective hearts for working so hard to make TEDxHilo exemplary for everyone involved. We absolutely loved your contribution and share your manao.

Mahalo for considering your involvement with TEDxHilo.

This is a grassroots effort. Volunteer organizers are needed for this event. We humbly request your help to organize, produce and deliver TEDxHilo.

The connections you make at TEDxHilo will last a lifetime. The knowledge, expertise and perspectives are capable of condensing years of information into bite-sized chunks that are easy to digest.

We need immediate and promotional support now to launch our marketing and ticket sales efforts.

Specific needs from the community:

  • Media Professionals to alert their channels, attend and report.
  • Community Business Leaders to get involved in the discussion to shape ideas for business leading towards job creation.
  • Community mentors to help assure smooth delivery of TEDxHilo from multiple perspectives.

  • On-site volunteer coordinators. You’ll setup and run a volunteer mtg at the event to communicate all volunteer responsibilities to the right volunteers.
  • Attendee liaisons to help folks find seats and answer basic questions. You’ll be responsible for making sure everyone has a great time watching and participating in the event. Specifically we want folks that can help start conversations between attendees.
  • Someone to escort presenters off the stage after their presentation. You will lead them to their designated discussion areas in the lobby of the venue. You’ll be instrumental in starting the post-presentation discussion.
  • Sound engineers and support to help with setup and take down. You’ll be responsible for making sure we make sweet music together and folks can clearly hear the presentations.
  • Multimedia support services to help setup projectors, screen and computers running slide shows. You’ll be responsible for visuals that display as intended and making the attendees eyes get big and filled with TEDxHilo joy.
  • Writers and online marketers to help get the word out!
  • Print designers to produce collateral materials for distribution pre and post event. You’ll be responsible for making us look great in print at the forum and around town before the event. Your art will help sell tickets.
