TEDxManhattan Speaker Update: Bill Yosses

We’ve been checking in with former TEDxManhattan speakers to get an update on their work.  Below, we hear from 2013 speaker Bill Yosses, Executive Pastry Chef at The White House.  See Bill’s talk here.

yossesWhat have been the most exciting developments in your work since TEDxManhattan?
The best part has been the connections I have made with people who have seen the talk and contacted me.   David Binkle of the Los Angeles Unified School System for one. He is the Food Director and has done a great job of changing the school lunch program there, it is really a model for the country. [Note: David will speak at TEDxManhattan 2014.]  Also Liz Williams of the Southern Food and Beverage Institute held a Farm to Table symposium in New Orleans and they are doing great things in Louisiana.

Where can we learn more about your work going forward?

What impact did TEDxManhattan have on your work?
I was amazed at the attendance and the reach of the talks.  They have a huge and influential audience.
