Sustainable Agriculture Production: Myths, Realities, and Society’s Expectations
A native of Marinette, WI, Todd discovered his passion for agriculture while at UW-Madison. Todd has an Associate’s degree from UWGB-Marinette campus (formerly UWC-Marinette), Bachelor of Agriculture from UW-Madison and a Master’s degree in Entomology also from UW-Madison and has a 30-year career in agriculture research and agri-business management in the US and Canada.
Managing Change is a Full-Time Job
With more than 30 years of experience in the professional beauty industry, Chuck Salewsky has consulted with almost every major brand on packaging, product introductions, channel partner selections, and acquisition candidates. For the majority of his career, he ran one of the largest family-owned distributors in the industry that was acquired in 2010. The distributor set new standards in the beauty business by deploying technology that increased service levels and sped up execution strategies, thus redefining the rules for servicing the beauty professional. iBeAuthentic was born from the desire to continue those professional beauty partnerships and accelerate the acceptance, deployment, and execution of technology to expand their reach and enhance their ability to provide service levels typically expected in the beauty consumer world, but not often found in the beauty “business to business” environment. “We want to be disruptive, but respectful to the ethos of the beauty professionals that have created an industry of constant change and opportunity.”
Who Cares About the Arts?
Kelli’s introduction to the power of the arts occurred when she played Chilly Willy, a ghost with a cold, in her 5th Grade play Haunts for Hire. Forty-one years later, her professional experience in the field has included working in smaller producing theatres, larger presenting institutions, higher education and plenty of years spent in the hustle as a freelance artist, teaching artist and consultant. She is currently the Executive and Artistic Director of The Weidner at University of Wisconsin – Green Bay and serves the sector that she loves as an arts leader, educator, speaker and coach.
TEDxUW-Green Bay is a self-organized program founded in 2018, which provides the chosen presenters with the opportunity to work with Content and Presentation coaches to develop their TEDx Talks for the event.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
About TEDTED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, often in the form of short talks delivered by leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED conferences, intimate TED Salons and thousands of independently organized TEDx events around the world. Videos of these talks are made available, free, on TED.com and other platforms. Audio versions of TED Talks are published to TED Talks Daily, available on all podcast platforms.
TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; TEDx, which licenses thousands of individuals and groups to host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities; The Audacious Project, which surfaces and funds critical ideas that have the potential to impact millions of lives; TED Translators, which crowdsources the subtitling of TED Talks so that big ideas can spread across languages and borders; and the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED also offers TED@Work, a program that reimagines TED Talks for workplace learning. TED also has a growing library of original podcasts, including The TED Interview with Chris Anderson, WorkLife with Adam Grant, Far Flung with Saleem Reshamwala and How to Be a Better Human.
