Stage Managing at TEDFest 2018

Stage Managing at TEDFest 2018

For the second year in a row (and continuing the tradition) Sean stage managed the TEDFest program at St. Ann's Warehouse. This event is a simulcast of the TED Conference in Vancouver and plays host to hundreds of TEDx Organizers eager to learn about how best to produce their events. Sean has particular attachment to these organizers since he organized TEDxGowanus.

Proofpoint Kick-Offs 2018

Sean Gannet Productions was pleased to team up with Proofpoint at their 2018 Kick-Off events in Santa Clara this year. It was our first year working with Proofpoint and as the Technical Producers we couldn't have been happier with the results. Beautiful stage and presentations, smooth integration with the events team, and an insane lip sync contest to boot!

Talks from our 2017 TED Institute events are hitting TED.com! Here's a talk that is near and dear to our hearts as it works to curb plastic pollution. Sean worked on TEDxGreatPacificGarbagePatch, and Mission Blue I, II to raise awareness of plastics' impact on the environment.

TEDGlobal 2017 - Arusha, Tanzania

TEDGlobal 2017 - Arusha, Tanzania

In late August a gathering of the most innovative, artistic, and revolutionary thinkers took place in Arusha, Tanzania in the foothills of Kilimanjaro. This was the the TEDGlobal conference and it returned to Arusha 10 years after the first TEDGlobal was held in Africa. I had the privilege of working with speakers throughout the rehearsal process and then managing the stage for the event. 

Powerful talks from the event are already being posted on TED.com. These include the emotional and beautiful speaking of OluTimehin Adegbeye who give new face to the impoverished and Olúfẹ́mi Táíwò who rings an alarm about a knowledge crises in Africa.
