James Grippando speaking at TEDxCoconutGrove at Ransom Everglades School in Miami, Florida on inspirations required for storytelling.
After twelve years as a trial lawyer, James is a national best-selling author of seventeen suspenseful thrillers. James's first job out of law school plunged him headlong into death penalty cases. That experience was an inspiration for his 1994 debut novel, The Pardon, a legal thriller that critics heralded as a "bona fide blockbuster." As a volunteer in Florida's guardian ad litem program, he helped provide legal representation to neglected children in family court proceedings.
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)
