Next Day Better launches int'l speaker series
NEW YORK CITY – Bringing together big thinkers and innovators, NextDayBetter introduces the Summer 2014 launch of our first worldwide speaker series in the following cities: New York, Los Angeles, Toronto and London. The series is themed Defining Breakthroughs: Unlocking Human and Community Potential, exploring how to harness the power of individual, community, and innovation-driven breakthroughs. "The global Filipino Diaspora is a hub and inspiration for world-changing ideas that pushes humanity forward.”, says Ryan Letada, NextDayBetter CEO and Co-Founder. “This global speaker and action series is designed to celebrate and amplify the impact of these ideas."
NextDayBetter provides a global platform for inspiring innovators to share their stories on how they have overcome challenges and failures, and how to continue to make real, visible change for communities in the Philippines and beyond. For some, a breakthrough means rebuilding a more resilient community after a disaster like Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines1; for others, it means breaking through unchartered waters.
We invite you to NextDayBetter’s Defining Breakthroughs series, as city curators inspire audiences through speaker talks, interactive activation spaces, art installations, and culinary arts. This international series will kick off at our flagship location in New York City, on May 3rd at Centre for Social Innovation (601 W. 26th St #325). Confirmed speakers include Geena Rocero, Nicole Ponseca, and more. Defining Breakthroughs will then continue in Los Angeles, California; Toronto, Canada; and London, United Kingdom.
