TEDxCalgary speaker Dan Meades is originally from St John's, Newfoundland where he studied English and Business at Memorial University before starting his career in community development and poverty reduction. Dan's work has led him throughout Canada, Europe, the United States and West Africa; all the while his focus has been on community change and civic empowerment. Dan is driven by the thought that our world can be a better place for everyone in it and prides himself on working to give a voice to populations that are not always heard. Dan is a recovering musician, still spending his spare time playing the guitar and, just recently, learning to play the ukulele. He is constantly searching for the perfect apple pie and interesting copies of his favorite books.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
