    Edison Talks 2016: Up To Here // Friday, October 21, 2016

    Edison Talks 2016

    Have you ever had it UP TO HERE?

    You’re frustrated after a line has been crossed. 

    You’re so far down one path that you struggle to change direction.

    You’re facing a challenge so overwhelming that you don’t know where to start.

    UP TO HERE is where Edison Talks begins this year. We will focus not on what got us to our breaking point, but on the possibilities that lie ahead. 

    Each of the day’s extraordinary speakers has found themselves UP TO HERE, but refused to accept the limitations “here" and chose instead to take action to get them “there.” At Edison Talks, we will explore those pivotal moments when chaos becomes clarity, fear turns to power and frustration fuels action.

    Join us to discover the beautiful horizon of infinite potential on the other side of “here."

    It’s your move.
