tedxportland CORPORATE CULTURE — What is the future of our professional world? How will we work together? The conversation starts with you. Tell us about your vision of Tomorrows in the comments. #TEDxPDX #TEDxTomorrows 1d
  •   cbtbaldwin It's so important and rewarding to work together; partnering in varied but mutual effort and shared good! :) Hope more continue to to find their way into and forward with this. 24h
  •   tedxportland @cbtbaldwin so true! Thank you for sharing! 23h
  •   multiplicitypdx Culture can't be top down driven. A company culture of tomorrow thrives when its foundation is built by the masses through grassroot initiatives. Purpose and passion are immediate thoughts for employees and not thought of as nice-to-haves. 18h
  •   tedxportland Beautifully said @multiplicitypdx! thank you for sharing! ️Would you be wiling to share what drives you? 18h
  •   multiplicitypdx Thanks @tedxportland. What drives me are the possibilities of new experiences and the opportunities that stem from those interactions. You never know when someone or something might change your life. 8h
  •   tedxportland Thanks! We too see those possibilities as endless @multiplicitypdx. It's one of the many reasons we love bringing #ideasworthspreading to @Portland. Your answer fits perfectly with the topic of 'Tomorrows', as each interaction and our reactions to them, form the foundation of the future. 8h

tedxportland The Idea behind the Goal:
If I inspire at least one other person to get back outside, fall in love with the outdoors, and become an advocate for the land, I'd call that success.

tedxportland The Decision: It all started here! I attended film school at the Art Institute of Portland. After almost moving back to Idaho to pursue a degree in Kinesiology, faculty and friends helped persuade me to stay, ultimately leading me to path that I'm on today. I consider it my turning point. What would you consider a monumental turning point in your life?
