- What We Do Matters
Every person has responsibilities and every responsibility has a price tag, which is we have to work to sustain our lives. The funny thing is, it doesn’t HAVE to be work. Work is a job if that’s what you make of it, but those of us that have made a CAREER out of helping others and being of-service have realized that work doesn’t have to be as one-dimensional as it sounds. Join keynote and two-time TEDx speaker George Andriopoulos as he discusses his unique view on work and business and how it all changed the day he had enough of the grind and was inspired to write his mission statement: The Things We Think and Do Not Say (yes Jerry Maguire fans, that’s the same mission statement). George discusses his journey over the last 20 years in the business world and interactively works with the audience on actionable takeaways to find inspiration in their work and become of-service to others.

- Students vs. Professionals: Why Cultivated Creativity in K-12 Blows Away the Creativity of Adults
A 5th grader and a mechanical engineer walk into a bar (stop me if you’ve heard this one). They are tasked with building an efficient scale within 3 days, that can weigh items up to 1 pound using any materials they desire. They present their finished projects three days later. The engineer developed a digital scale with an internal processor that links to a mobile app and can measure down to the nearest ounce. The cost to build his project was nearly $400 and it took him the entire three days. The student built a balance scale using balsa wood, rubber bands, paper plates and a check weight set, which he borrowed from his science teacher. It measures to the nearest tenth of a gram and cost him $3.50 to build. He also coded a simple website in his spare time with a weight conversion chart, instructional videos on how to build this scale, and earned $23.75 in ad revenue from those YouTube videos. So how do we cultivate and harness the creativity of our students?
- The Impact of Innovation via Disruption | George Andriopoulos | TEDxDeerPark
Organizations often search for answers within a self-imposed box, but what if they escaped the box? What if they changed the way their organization functions by turning that box on its side? Disrupting the "norms" that organizations impose on themselves is a tricky business, but once you change how the game is played, you create a brand new game. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
- How Growing Up Hindered My Creativity | TEDx 2019
Why is it that if you put a problem in front of my kids and the same problem in front of me, my kids will do a better job solving it? That’s because I went and did what a kid considers the worst thing imaginable…I grew up. We relate adulting to work and responsibilities, but the truth about adulting is that we develop reasoning that controls our thought process as we grow older. There is no box surrounding our ideas, there’s only reasoning telling us why our ideas won’t work. Kids, on the other hand, don’t have the baggage weighing down their ideas that we adults tend to carry. So how do we find the middle ground? How do we maintain our creativity while still retaining some semblance of adult responsibility? Better yet, how do we cultivate the creativity in our children so that they don’t go down the same predictable road that we did?
