All last week I blogged about some of the great speakers we would have at the TedXMinaretsSchool event that was going to be held on Friday, August 5. We have decided to postpone the event.
We (Jon Corippo, Chris Scott and myself) had many conversations over the weekend before deciding to postpone the event. Our reasons included a low number of attendees registered for the event and our concern for our outstanding speakers not having an adequate audience to listen to their message.
We continue to evaluate why we did not have more registrations, but we believe that it had to do with timing, scheduling the event on a Friday, and the large number of education related conferences/events that have taken place already this summer.
We will be choosing a Saturday in the fall to reschedule the event but would like your input regarding the event. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey to provide us with more information to make TedXMinaretsSchool successful in the fall. As soon as we have a new date, we will put out the word. Anyone interested in helping with the event should email me.
