Ogden, UT (June 14, 2017) – The inaugural

TEDxOgden will take place in the beautiful, historic Peery’s Egyptian Theater
on Friday, June 16 from 5-10 p.m. The event brings together entrepreneurs,
social media influencers, artists, and outdoor enthusiasts with an ‘idea worth
spreading’ under the theme ‘Untamed’.

Designed to
showcase the ideas and talents of the Ogden community, this event will have
performances from nine local artists and four local speakers. Speakers like Batman
movie producer Michael Uslan, social media influencer Shaun McBride, aka
Shonduras, local entrepreneur Amir Jackson and local community advocate Paige
Pitcher will be on the Peery’s Egyptian Theater stage.

“The speakers
for TEDxOgden were handpicked for their inspired thinking and passion to share
some of their experiences with others” said organizer Sydnie Furton. “Each
speaker has been challenged to give a powerful talk that will inspire the
crowed in 18 minutes or less. The diversity of the speakers and the message
they have to give will make for a memorable and powerful evening.”

Limited tickets
are still on sale to watch the event from the stage and can be purchased at or at the theater’s box
office. The public is invited to watch a free live screening of the event in
