The first TEDx conference in the Quad Cities was held recently at the Figge Art Museum on March 7, 2018. Organized by Andrea Olson, CEO and founder of prag'madik, it featured fourteen different speakers who delivered short but powerful talks on a variety of ideas ranging from empowerment through technology, to financial literacy, to deeply personal subjects such as the importance of forgiveness and overcoming personal obstacles.
