The TED format is pretty hard to beat if you’re into inspirational public speaking.

And since TEDxPhiladelphia is still reorganizing its programming for the year, you may want to get 2017 started by attending TEDxPenn, the student-organized speaker series that will hold its next event on April 1.

Nathan Kok, Director of PR and Marketing, reached out to Technical.ly Philly to tell us the event is expected to bring together one thousand attendees at the Annenberg Theater for Performing Arts on Penn’s campus.

“Our theme is intentionally polysemic—the coexistence of many possible meanings for a word or phrase,” the event website reads. “On the one hand, rise and run is a reference to the mathematical description of slopes, positive growth, upward trends. On the other hand, rise and run can be interpreted literally, as in the case of someone who is motivated to wake up and do what he/she loves to do.”
