Anna was the Keynote Speaker for the inaugural Special Operations Forces (SOF) Innovation Foundry, a workshop focused on conceptualizing futuristic technological concepts.  Her presentation stepped us through her personal experiences with innovation and perfectly set the stage for the remainder of the workshop.  Anna’s insight was great value added for educational purposes and expanded the aperture for the realm of the possible.

"After listening to Anna's presentation, my daughter has been inspired to become an engineer. She informed me that 'she wants to design new things'.  As we drove home, she informed me that she no longer wants to grow up and become a dance instructor. She wants to be an engineer like Anna. She asked me if I would get her a chalk board so she could draw her designs ( as she saw Anna had done)."

"The BBC carried a piece about flying cars which led me to Terrafugia's website and so to this talk. Anna and the concept are both truly inspiring.... It takes a visionary then progressive development in the face of disbelief to get to the stage where the world gets it. Thanks TED for another great talk and best of luck Anna and Terrafugia!"
