Announcing Something Extraordinary: Our Mystery Session
Category: 2012 Event, News, Speaker Announcements

Shhh! We have a very secretive announcement to make this week. As you well know, Jefferson Smith is curating a session at TEDxConcordiaUPortland (now known as TEDxMtHood). But do you know what speakers he’s chosen? Are you excited to hear who else will make March 31st such an extraordinary day? If you’re teetering on the edge of your seat, hold tight (and don’t fall!) because you’re going to have to wait just a little longer. That’s right—Jefferson’s session will be a mystery session that will unfold before your very eyes the day of the event. We know, we know. It wouldn’t be right to leave you totally hanging. That’s just not very nice. Instead, we’ll further pique your curiosity about this guest curated session by leaving you with a few clues. Hazard a guess, take a chance, and be ready to find out who these mysterious folks are next Saturday!
