We share locations of AEDs in public places. We ask employees and bystanders about them and get a variety of answers. Most people are not CPR/AED trained or do not know what to do with an AED. #whereistheaed is our campaign to enhace awareness. Be prepared to save a life. Learn CPRAED.
Message from John Werner to TEDx BeaconStreet Adventure Catalysts:
TED.com has reposted the first talk from TEDxBeaconStreet 2015 group. They are a number of other of our talks in the pipeline–a huge endorsement of the quality of our work together last November. This is just the beginning of a major extension of the reach of the ideas we are turning into action.
This is a moment to celebrate your contribution to the event. As our talks spread all over the world, remember that it’s not just the speakers who have earned the glory. The video and audio quality make their ideas come through clearly. The set and lighting design set the stage for deep thoughts. The reaction shots from a diverse, engaged audience prompt viewers to take it as seriously (and have as much fun) as we did. The view counts and profiles on the beautifully designed TEDxBeaconStreet.com speak to the professionalism and dedication of the conference. None of this would be possible without the countless contributions of time, talent, and money that you have made.
