10 Minute Talks - For You, By You

Have you ever seen a TED talk? The Catalyst Series is a take-off on the concept. It gives our members the stage to create a short video and share their knowledge, experience, and ideas with their CCUMC colleagues. No need to fear—these aren't expected to be Hollywood productions. Just share your unique message in a clear, concise presentation that inspires, informs, educates, or challenges other CCUMC members. Presentations can be technical or non-technical, presented by you alone or with collaborators. Be brave—be a catalyst!
