Many of you have requested to see the video of Michelle from her TEDx talk in Whitehorse. Here it is, “A Journey with Dogs: Michelle Phillips at TEDxWhitehorse.” From the official TEDx video’s description: Michelle was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon. Together with her partner Ed Hopkins she runs a kennel of 55 sled dogs, along with two golden retrievers, two cats and some fish. With her dog team she has run six Yukon Quests and three Iditarods.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
