With a full day of talks and ideas worth spreading, TEDxToronto 2012 was an enormous success. The day began with a bang and the energy and intellectual alchemy continued late into the evening. We are thrilled with how the event came together and we’d like to recognize the many people who worked hard to make this year’s conference our best yet.
