Watch MBUS Director David Barbe’s TEDxUGA talk

Everyone has this idea of what they want to ‘be’ when they grow up. But the real question is, how do you get there?

David Barbe, director of Terry’s Music Business Program, has created his own career path by doing the things that he is passionate about. Instead of having a career define you, you should define what that career means to you. And to David, putting your passions towards the process of becoming is the best way to get there.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
