My first time going to TED, and quality of the speakers varies, overall disappointing. Some were extremely boring (reading from the notes the entire time). There were a couple of insightful ideas, but among which few provide any solution to the problem discussed. Certainly does not worth $30. Very low turn out, 90% people attending were speakers or speaker's family and friends if any.

About the Host:
David Zoltan has lived a dozen lives between his departure from and return to the nonprofit arts world. Whether working as a secretary or running a business, selling cars or owning a game store, the arts have always been his passion, especially theatre, and he’s excited to be back with his first love. Yet David still thinks of himself as an entrepreneur at heart, and has the scars from innumerable battles over strategy and policy to prove it.
While David specializes in individual giving, events and social media, he tends to take a holistic approach to all of his endeavors. His most prominent work has been as a fundraiser for the Steppenwolf Theatre and BackStage Theatre companies. He is currently a thought leader in arts management for his new social media venture, ArtsAppeal.org, has a seat on the Governors Circle of the Steppenwolf Auxiliary Council and was instrumental in developing the Victory Gardens Theatre’s young professionals group, Pulp.
A native of Detroit, David received his B.A. at Michigan State in East Lansing and his Masters of Arts Management from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, but calls Chicago the best home he’s ever known.
