Andrew Lockie, CEO of the United Way of London & Middlesex, shares his unique perspective on the future of philanthropy. He draws connections between third-grade literacy levels and future incarceration rates, and presents a compelling argument as to why non-profit efficiency and effectiveness are not the same thing.

The theme of this inaugural conference was Own Your Passion. A total of 200 spots were reserved for audience members, while thousands more across the country joined via satellite locations and live video stream.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
