  • Overview
    The most meaningful app​roach to storytelling is interaction with the people who are the stories: current, living, creators of new ideas and developers of the latest innovations. Through engagement with the “who behind the what,” the stories come alive and create an emotional impact. ciLive! is a local-facing conference with world-class presenters, making it a unique combination of Ted Talks and SXSW providing opportunities to interact with people (some famous, all inspired) who have dreamed, created, and accomplished. Unlike other large conferences, each talk is followed by a speaker meet-and-greet where attendees can converse with the speakers. Generous sponsors make the event free and open to the public.
