  1. Moving Beyond Less Bad | Matt Stinchcomb | TEDxWashingtonSquare

    Matt Stinchcomb challenges us to reimagine business in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. Moving beyond the notion of striving for "less bad", the idea behind the Good Work Institute is a new paradigm of business education that teaches entrepreneurs how to honor self, the planet and community with wisdom, compassion and ethics.

    MATT STINCHCOMB is the Executive Director of Good Work Institute (formerly, etsy.org). Previously, he was the VP, Values, and Impact at etsy.com. In that role he oversaw the stewardship of the company’s mission, and worked to give all employees the means and the desire to maximize the benefit their work has on people and the planet. In 2013, he was named a GOOD Magazine ‘Figure of Progress’. The next year he was named as one of the Purpose Economy 100. In 2016, Matt was selected as a BALLE Local Economy Fellow. Matt also serves on the Board of Directors for the Schumacher Center for New Economics, the Center for a New American Dream, and Naropa University. He is a graduate of Oberlin College and lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife, Benedikta, and their sons, Francis and Lewie.

    Brad Frost is a web designer, speaker, writer, musician, and artist located in beautiful Pittsburgh, PA. He spends most days (and nights) creating Web experiences that look and function beautifully on the never-ending stream of connected devices. He travels all over the world speaking about Web design, and has worked with brands Nike, Tiffany, AOL, Entertainment Weekly, HP, MasterCard, L’Oreal and more.

    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)

  4. My journey from Marine to actor | Adam Driver

    Before he fought in the galactic battles of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Adam Driver was a United States Marine with 1/1 Weapons Company. He tells the story of how and why he became a Marine, the complex transition from soldier to civilian — and Arts in the Armed Forces, his nonprofit that brings theater to the military. Because, as he says: "Self-expression is just as valuable a tool as a rifle on your shoulder." Followed by a spirited performance of Marco Ramirez’s "I am not Batman" by Jesse J. Perez and Matt Johnson. (Adult language)
