SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Entrepreneurs, business leaders, and the community gathered in Springfield on Friday to spread ideas, inspire change, and spark conversation.
It’s all part of Ted-x-Springfield, which is an event that’s designed to help the region take the next step toward becoming a center of innovation.
One of the speakers that presented at the event told 22News, he enjoys Ted Talks because of the different perspectives others provide that can help him and his business.
“Often times in our lives we live in really small circles. When we come to an event like Ted Talks or Ted X, and take a look at the way other people look at things, sometimes that’s a real eye-opener,” said Peter Gailey, President of Broadcast Med.
Friday’s event featured 12 speakers that spoke about how a simple idea led to great opportunities.
