Good Times: ‘Smells like team spirit’

GT1515_CoverEFMThe organizers of TEDx Santa Cruz don’t just talk about this year’s theme, ‘radical collaboration’—they live it

That’s how the Good Times alt-weekly started its cover page story about TEDx:SantaCruz: Radical Collaboration. The story went on to introduce Irene Holombo, one of our co-organizers, who travelled to Bhutan earlier this year and has been asked to return for some high-level collaboration in the South Asian kingdom.

Nada Miljkovic also talked about radical collaboration in the story and how it plays out in the planning of the TEDx event. “There are four of us on this core team, and we got to this place where we said, ‘What happens when we disagree with each other? Is it a three-to-one vote? What if we split?’ And we decided we will stay in the room and hammer it out until we come to a decision. Until we come to a consensus. That’s what we decided, and that’s what we do.”
