As you may have heard, about a month ago, we revealed the six fabulous Buffalonians who will be speaking at TEDxBuffalo 2015. Perhaps you’ve learned their names and read their bios, and hopefully they excited you enough that you’ve applied to attend this year’s event.

But if you’d like to get to know Rhonda Frederick, Kaitlin Garrity, Dr. Christopher Kerr, Kara Oliver, Rebecca Sophia Strong and Danielle Twum — and their Ideas Worth Spreading — even better before October, press play on the YouTube playlist above and allow each of this year’s speakers to further “illuminate” themselves and their talk topics.

And if you haven’t yet, be sure to apply to attend TEDxBuffalo 2015 before Friday, August 14!

(Psssst: Did you see that two of our speakers from last year’s event, Gaitrie Devi and Dr. Kimberly Young, were recently featured in The Public and on 60 Minutes Australia, respectively? How cool is that!)
