At A Glance

Wednesdays  12-1 pm

TED Talks

No need to register. Bring a lunch or call The Commons (952-474-1001) by 11:00AM Wednesday morning to order a sandwich from Milio's.

TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

Watch for upcoming dates and topics

 

Are you searching for wisdom from someone who has already “been there”? Perhaps you have an issue or idea that could benefit from discussion and “fleshing out” by a group of encouraging minds? Or maybe there is a topic that you simply want to know more about … That’s the premise behind Collaborative Conversations. Join us @ The Commons for what we promise will be stimulating conversations.

(tentatively) once a month - 4:30-6 pm

(We'll get the word out)

Close your laptop, remove your earbuds and join your fellow Common’rs for a happy hour, or so. The Commons will host a casual gathering for our members, we shoot for  one Friday of each month from 4:30-6pm. Clearly, that is not written in stone, so stay tuned and Cheers! We look forward to enjoying your company.

Fyi
