February 8th Salon Event


What is a Salon Event? Salon events are a small event that keeps a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. It’s a unique kind of gathering that TEDx organizers hold which allows the conversation to continue, in person.
Attendees can participate in an active discussion with our Headline Speakers after watching their favorite Ted Talk. Drinks and light fare will be served.
TEDxBillings Salon events are a place to network, share ideas and collaborate with our speakers, the TEDx Executive Team and other members of the Billings community and we look forward to having you join us to share ideas!
Tickets are limited to 60 attendees per session, each ticket is $20.

Throughout the course of Chrissy’s career as a marine mammal trainer, her feelings about animals in captivity for the purposes of entertainment evolved. She began to look towards applying her skills in a way that would promote conservation, rescue, rehabilitation, and finding creative ways for humans and animals to work together in a manner that benefits both…not just humans. She learned about managing elephants in protected contact and utilizing positive reinforcement training as an Animal Care Specialist at Busch Gardens Tampa. Her interest in rescue and rehabilitation was also fostered in Tampa, FL, where she volunteered  with local animal rescue organizations. Her desire to share ideas and knowledge to improve the lives of  elephants working in developing countries brought her to Thailand in 2013, where her career as a consultant began. When she is not  teaching positive reinforcement training techniques and ways to improve elephant welfare, Chrissy likes to spend her time learning about other cultures and ‘jungle’  ways of life.
