Open to the Public

Join us on Monday, August 21st at 6:00 p.m. for TEDxOMAHA Salon as we delve into the intricate and sometimes confusing world of The Art of Communication. We will explore what was said, what was meant, what was understood, what was misunderstood, and what was left unsaid.

Communication is a powerful tool that can be used deliberately or even without thinking. It can be intentional, unintentional, carefully crafted, or carelessly thrown together.

How many times have we been gratified or even mystified and perplexed by what colleagues, family members, friends and even total strangers have said or not said? How often have we picked up cues from nonverbal communication and ‘tone’ of conversation? Filled in the gaps. Less of what is said, than what is missing or not said. What narratives have we created?

Join David Gillis and TEDxOMAHA on Monday, August 21st from 6:00-7:00 PM as we explore the art of communication, and unveil some of the mysteries at the core of a basic need!

KANEKO is located at 1111 Jones Street in Downtown Omaha.

PARKING: There are a few metered spots alongside the building on Jones. It is recommended that you park at the garage on 10th & Jackson Street.

About TEDxOmaha
TEDxOmaha is an independently organized TEDx event. As a part of the global TED community, we connect locally to explore the ideas and situations that affect our cultures, environments, and minds. Most people are introduced to this remarkable collection of human experiences through recorded TED Talks. Through technology, we can hear stories of discovery, heartache, joy, introspection, and imagination from some of the world’s most amazing people. By creating events in Omaha, we produce an experience based on TED’s principles.

Who attends TEDxOmaha? Five hundred of our community’s most curious, forward-thinking people. Activists, artists, philanthropists, modern-day philosophers, policymakers, stay-at-home parents, and more. You, too, can gather with amazing people from our region who share their insights and accomplishments. It helps us witness what is happening – and what is possible – so we can be inspired to take bigger steps together. TEDxOmaha is held annually in October and offers monthly TEDxOmahaSalon events at KANEKO.
