Apply to speak at TEDx NSU (Deadline: Sept. 30)



What Makes You Stop, Drop, and Roll? Share Your Story at TEDxNSU!

 Stop, drop, and roll—simple guidance we were all given as school children. But like most classroom lessons, this advice should extend beyond the boundaries of the school yard and childhood. Thoughts without action are as empty as actions without thought. For this year’s TEDxNSU event, we’re challenging you to tell us how you have stopped, dropped, and rolled in your life. What has made you pause, take stock of what’s going on, then catapulted you into action? And would you do it again?
