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.

A worrying trend is creeping across the nonprofit sector in Australia.  More and more organisations are crafting new ‘mission statements’ that are nothing more than marketing taglines. And not always good ones at that.

This is a problem because taglines and mission statements serve completely difference purposes.
