Jordan Banks is the managing director of Facebook Canada, responsible for leading and managing all commercial operations at the Facebook Canada office based in Toronto.

Over the course of the past two decades, Jordan has personally championed numerous efforts relating to raising money and awareness for Alzheimer's research and care. As part of that commitment, Jordan was the founder of both the Twitter movement called "A Million Tweets to Remember" as well as the popular fundraising event called Sportsfest.

Jordan is also a Charter Member of C100, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Canadian technology entrepreneurship and investment. In addition, he is proud to serve as a business mentor as part of the Next36, an organization focused on helping launch the entrepreneurial careers of 36 of Canada's most promising and innovative undergraduates students.

In his talk, Jordan shares the three pillars of life to an incredible journey of impact. Be curious to discover your true passion, think boldly to overcome mediocrity, and most importantly, have a bias for action.

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)
