    Our premier, invitation-only event, Edison Talks is a specially curated day of mind-bending speakers, provocative performances and unique experiences. At Edison Talks, CIW features extraordinary presenters sharing stories and ideas designed to shift the way you experience the world. 

    Is there time to fix it? Find it? Change it? Stop it? Cure it? Build it? Save it?

    Sometimes, it feels like time is running out. Speakers from across business, academics, art, technology and more will explore one of life’s fundamental, often overlooked questions: Is there time? 

    *This Talk will be livestreamed by ABC7 Chicago.
