TED2015: Truth and Dare, Featuring Lavin Speakers David Eagleman and Neri Oxman

TED2015 starts today in Vancouver, and our President and CEO David Lavin is there for his 10th TED conference. This year, TED's theme is "Truth and Dare," where "speakers will challenge our notions of truth—and dare to imagine the future." The Lavin Agency is proud to say six of our speakers will appear on this year's TED stage, including keynotes from David Eagleman and Neri Oxman, a TED University session from Tim Leberecht, and TED Fellow presentations from Greg Gage, Christopher Soghoian, and Lucianne Walkowicz. Here are the details:

David Eagleman decodes the mysteries of the tangled web of neurons and electricity that make our minds tick—and also make us human. He will present his TED Talk during Session 2: What Are We Thinking? on Tuesday, March 17.

From the micro scale to the building scale, Neri Oxman imagines and creates structures and objects that are inspired, informed and engineered by, for and with nature. She will present her TED Talk during Session 10: Building From Scratch on Thursday, March 19.

As chief marketing officer at NBBJ, Tim Leberecht helps spark and nurture new thinking (and great design) for companies around the world. He will take part in TED University on stage on Wednesday, March 18.

Neuroscientist Greg Gage, privacy researcher and activist Christopher Soghoian, and astronomer Lucianne Walkowicz all spoke during yesterday's TED Fellows Talks.

As TED week continues, we look forward to sharing further updates from our man-on-the-ground, David Lavin (who himself has spoken at three "off-the-record" events at TED), and featuring more of our outstanding TED speakers. And for those of you who can't wait for these TED Talks to appear online, you can follow the TED2015 livestream.
