TEDxSeattle Café on the Water
When we think of power, we think of force. But is force always the best option? Consultant, trainer, and TEDxSeattle speaker Tim Dawes demonstrates the power of compassion to influence, lead, and create better outcomes in business and everyday life. Using remarkable true stories, Tim shows how re-imagining compassion as a practical set of skills enables us to shift our relationships with adversaries, collaborate, and quickly invent new options we might never have considered before.

In addition to hearing from Tim on compassion, guests will learn how TEDxSeattles team curates its speakers - a fascinating process alone. Joining Tim Dawes will be Lisa Phelps Dawes, Chief Storyteller at Storied Thoughts and Co-Chair of the TEDxSeattle Speaker Team. Lisa will share her expertise and insights into the curation process for TEDx programs. Using video for storytelling, Lisa has won more than two dozen international, national, and regional awards, including four Emmys. And, better still, these awards have earned market share and customers for her clients!  

If youve been wondering how to get your organization involved in the global TED movement on a regional level, this event is for you!
