Marc Elliot knows adversity firsthand. He was born with a rare disease that left him with virtually no intestines, and at age nine he developed a neurological disorder, Tourette's Syndrome, that manifested with physical and vocal outbursts called tics. In any given day, Marc would experience upwards of 3,500 tics, totaling approximately 25 million over the course of his 20-year struggle with the disorder. Remarkably, in 2013, after taking courses with Executive Success Programs, Marc completely overcame his Tourette's by using mind over body. Now 28 years old, Marc lives tic-free. He was named 2011 College Speaker of the Year by Campus Activities Magazine, is the author of What Makes You Tic?: My Journey From Tourette's To Tolerance, and has reached nearly one million people with his message of tolerance.

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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
