TEDxKC: Changing The Narrative


TED talks are those 18-minute presentations about big ideas and theories. Since 2009, Kansas City has hosted a TED conference of its own. Steve Kraske sits down with TEDxKC organizer Mike Lundgren for a look at this year's event including a sneak peek at a local singer/songwriter, 15 year-old Gracie Schram.


  • Mike Lundgren is the organizer and host of the TEDxKC conference. He is also Director of Innovation Strategy and a partner at KC-based ad firm VML.

Hear More: If you weren't able to get a ticket to this year's TEDxKC you can livestream the event or join the watch party at the Sprint Accelerator in the Crossroads.
