Over the last three years I have been involved with TEDxSouthbank in a variety of capacities. In my first year I was a participant in the audience. The second year I was an advocate (a volunteer dedicated to supporting new participants immerse themselves in the TEDx community). Most recently I was a speaker.
Being involved at different levels, in different capacities has taught me many things. These are the top 11 things I wish I knew before attending my first ever TEDx event.
