TEDxBend 2014 will host 15 extraordinary speakers and performers from around the country and right here in Bend, telling stories, sharing inspiration, revealing truths—“cracking themselves open,” in the words of one of last year’s speakers. Come back on March 12 when we announce two of this year’s speakers. For the rest, you’ll have to show up at the event on April 26.
Precourt launched on his first space flight in 1993, aboard the Columbia. A highly decorated veteran of four different missions, Precourt was Chief of the Astronaut Corps from 1998-2002 and was inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in 2012. He retired from NASA in 2004 and now leads ATK Aerospace Group, where he is overseeing the development of a launch system that he hopes will enable human-manned deep space exploration. Whoa.
Hurley founder and CEO Bob Hurley made his work his play from the beginning. Hurley started as a surfer and board shaper in Huntington Beach, before acquiring the license to Billabong USA in 1982, starting his own eponymous surf and skate company in 1999, and folding into the Nike brand in 2002, where he continues to lead the $252M business. Hurley’s instincts to make surf culture less insular and more inclusive have led the brand toward successful alignments in music, art and youth culture. He still surfs and shapes boards today.
