TEDxCincinnati Salon Event

The TEDxCincinnati Salon Event, featuring a Happy Hour and Auditions, is back for the fourth year on March 8, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at The Redmoor in Mt. Lookout. The event is the precursor to the TEDxCincinnati Main Stage Event held annually in June. 

The Salon Event is a chance for those interested in presenting a Tedx talk to sharpen their skills in front of a live audience. Selected speakers will have 2.5 minutes to perform in front of an audience and a judging panel at the TEDxCincinnati Salon Event.  

The speaker application form is now available and due by February 17. Speakers will be notified by February 22. 

On this Super Bowl week, watch NFL Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz as he talks about overcoming adversity in his 2015 TedxCincinnati talk.

Anthony Muñoz is a Cincinnati sports icon. Considered by many as the greatest offensive lineman in NFL history, he was an eleven-time NFL Pro Bowl selection, three-time NFL Offensive Lineman of the Year and four-time NFL Players Association Lineman of the Year. He is a member of the NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team and in 1998, was elected to the NFL Hall of Fame. 

A California native, Muñoz battled multiple injuries prior to his NFL career, including three knee surgeries that almost ended his career. His faith, family and sheer will helped him overcome these setbacks. Anthony was the recipient of many awards. In 2002, Anthony established the Anthony Muñoz Foundation, a non-profit organization that impacts area youth mentally, physically and spiritually. The foundation has impacted more than 25,000 children and raised more than $11,000,000 and continues to grow.
