We need more… PLAY! Read + Heed…GO!
One of my favorite “moda Moments” this season - playoff ticket giveaway @ Waterfront Park/Downtown PDX!
Blazers + moda + KC = Community Catalysts!
KC has had enough so, he has decided to get on his soapbox and… TAKE A STAND FOR PLAY! The audience agrees to take an “adult resignation” for a moment! Kevin then makes his case for PLAY and why every TED gathering, business events and conferences should ALWAYS have a PLAY Break as part of the agenda. He cites the research of Plato & Einstein (respectively) – “you can discover more about a person in one hour of play than in a year of conversation + Play IS the highest form of research”. He shares the catalytic efforts of GLOBAL GAMECHANGERS and a simple truth - a BALL can change the world! Then the TEDxOU “royal rumpus” moment: a social experiment is proposed - COME Outside & PLAY! FOUR Square courts are setup for the attendees - GameON! The result = unexpected connections, joy-filled convos, laughter, personal revelations about the role + value of play and a re-energized audience ready to receive the insight-filled talks & ideas worth spreading at TEDxOU.
KC’s TEDxOU Talk!
The first annual Rip City Relay created by the Blazers & Moda Health saw the ceremonial game ball travel from Coos Bay, OR up the coast and across the state visiting 11 cities/towns along the way. The ceremonial ball was delivered to the Moda Center for tip-off at the home opener of the Portland Trail Blazers 2013-2014 season!
