The power of ‘X’

It’s official! The TED bug is on and so is the power of ‘X’.  And we are all set for TEDxNicosia 2014 on November 1. This year, our theme is PERSPECTIVES and we are delighted with people’s enthusiasm when we ask: “So… what’s your PERSPECTIVE?’
 
I feel  honored to be part of such an incredible team of volunteers, which works tirelessly and passionately towards one single goal- to organize and present an event which will intrigue, energize and inspire with ‘ideas worth spreading.’

Every single TEDxer will tell you that this is their way of giving back to the community. Quite simply, it is their humble contribution to society. What’s more, this is a returning team… So, I asked everyone why! What is that magical X formula which keeps everyone glued on TEDxNicosia?
 
“It’s all about the collective power of energy: felt through working with a wonderful team, speakers, performers, partners, and the audience. And, the magic being manifested via the local community.” –Paul Koronis, Organizer/ Curator
TEDxNicosiaTeam
 
“The like-minded and passionate energy of the TEDxNicosia team, which makes an inspirational impact in our community.”  –Loris Stavrinides, Organizer/ Creative Director
 
“What has inspired me to join and be a part of this family is positiveness, thrive for knowledge and peace of mind, happiness, and living in the moment with great ideas!”     –Evanthia Koronis, Sponsors & Logistics Coordinator
 
“TEDxNicosia has become a way of living. I love our meetings and the times we collectively brainstorm! It’s about professionalism, genuine teamwork, the love we all share for new ideas, the adrenaline rush and the overall excitement on the countdown to the event!” – Stephania Constantinou, Translations & Logistics
 
 “The unparalleled spirit of the team! Because that’s one of the main ingredients for the success of TEDxNicosia.” – Andri Josef, Photographer
 
“The need to learn, improve and be inspired by people who have an idea worth spreading!” –Charis Michael, Sponsors & Logistics Coordinator
 

“The TEDxNicosia experience is truly profound. The reason I keep coming back is because I believe in the spirit of TED, which essentially means bringing people together to spread new ideas. What inspires me is that our team, devotes their personal time to organize successful events in order to spread new ideas to the community around us. We are all so different, coming from different backgrounds but because we share the same values we make it happen. We all inspire and challenge each other and that is how we are able to put together a platform for voices to be heard.” –Christina Neophytidou, Ticketing & Auditorium Management

“The immense impact these events have on our little island’s society. Everyone owes it to themselves to be motivated and inspired. So let’s keep spreading those ideas!”
–Stephanie Stefanou, Logistics
 
With all that being said so passionately, what more can I say other than:
 
LET’S KEEP THE POWER AND MAGIC OF ‘X’ SPREADING!
And let’s keep sprinkling it with passion!

About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYXN500. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!
