Have you ever wanted to do something like climb to the top of Mt. Tallac or try a new sport such as mountain biking but thought, “No way I’ll ever be able to do that!” For many of us, this statement rings too true. We focus on the impossible when it should be on the "I’m-Possible." That’s what our 2019 speaker Chris Bertish brings to our TEDx event. Inspiration to follow your dreams and make them a reality!

Who Is Chris Bertish?

It’s always said you better walk-the-walk before you talk-the-talk, and Chris Bertish is the ultimate example of inspiring others to follow their dreams. From being the first man to paddle across the Atlantic Ocean to surfing waves as tall as a four-story building, his achievements read like a superhero comic book. Instead of checking adventures off his list or just continuing to push the envelope, he uses these events to inspire the greatest potential in people.

What’s Your Dream?


Before you step into the 2019 TEDx South Lake Tahoe venue, take a second and think about what your dream is. As the famous architect Daniel Burnham once said:

“Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood… Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.”

If you don’t have a dream just yet, use this event to create that spark in your soul. Don’t let another day pass without following your passion and creating something bigger than you!
