Introducing TED@PMI

action impact ted at pmi

Everyone celebrates the thought leader. But thoughts alone won’t solve the world’s biggest challenges. In the face of disruptive technological change, we need action leaders. With their game changing business projects, awe-inspiring creative pursuits and innovative collaborations, these doers are turning big ideas into a better reality. 

TED@PMI is a celebration of our community of doers and the vision, inspiration and plain mesmerizing awe of turning ideas into action.


Every year, TED works with a group of carefully selected organizations like PMI to identify their best inventors, connectors, and creators. They oversee the curation process and provide one-on-one talk development training to sharpen and hone ideas and talks.

TED@PMI is a celebration of that need to reimagine those moments of inspiration and the mesmerizing experience of turning ideas into action.

This is an opportunity to let talents, ideas, and vision of the project community shine to the world. We're going to showcase project leaders who turn ideas into action and inspiration into reality.

The culmination will be a virtual TED@PMI event where our speakers and performers will take the stage to share their big, bold, creative idea with the PMI Community. Details on the virtual event and how to register will be shared shortly.
