TEDxWilmette 2021 Sponsors

A. Perry Homes

A. Perry Homes are the architects, builders, and remodelers of choice for families who believe in making their dream home a reality. We help our clients turn their vision into a tangible, luxury home through our fully custom design process. Our team listens to the wants and needs of our clients and then helps design a home to suit their individual lifestyle, tastes, and traditions. When we design a home, we imagine and thoughtfully think through every detail so that when you move in, you can be assured that it’s nothing less than perfection.


Bespoke Floral Design

Bespoke provides flowers for all types of events. Be it a casual barbeque or sophisticated wedding, we work with you to complement whatever experience you are planning. On a monthly basis, we offer our private mailing list a seasonal arrangement to enjoy in their home.  We think that flowers should be in your everyday vocabulary and NOT just for special occasions. Flowers make great gifts! We frequently fulfill requests for smaller multiple arrangements that are given as thank you gifts. Or perhaps you need something magical and magnificent for a special birthday or anniversary?  We speak flowers!


North Shore Community Bank

North Shore Community Bank & Trust provides banking solutions specifically created for our area. Whether you’re looking for a checking account for yourself, a first savings account for your child, or a loan for your business, we’re here for you with personalized solutions and friendly service. 


We believe a bank should be a true asset to the area it serves, which is why we’re proud to host financial education courses, community events, and even neighborhood cookouts. We’re not just in this community, we’re an active, contributing part of it, and we do our part to help Wilmette thrive.


North Shore Community Bank & Trust is a branch of Wintrust Bank. Member FDIC.


Actors Training Center

The Actors Training Center has been serving the greater Chicagoland area since 2007. 

At ATC, our mission is to ignite passion for the performing arts at all ages and to give students a platform to use their art to effect meaningful change in their communities and the world around them.



Since 2007, DialogTech has led the marketing technology industry as a customer-first call analytics platform. When an organization relies on inbound phone calls to serve its customers, we help them understand those callers more deeply. We solve the complex challenge of connecting online activities to offline behaviors, giving businesses more visibility into the true voice of their customer. Digital marketers rely on this conversation data to measure the impact of their campaigns, to map the entire customer journey, and to transform every inbound caller from a lead to a loyal customer.


Woman's Club of Wilmette

The Woman's Club of Wilmette has strengthened and supported our community since 1891. Our enthusiastic sponsorship of TEDxWilmette is a proud opportunity to live into our mission to serve as a vibrant, inclusive resource for social progress and community outreach through inspiring education and engagement. Our motto, Progress is the law of life, is embodied by The Power Of Women Working Together, and with the 2020 completion of the south end of our clubhouse, we offer Wilmette a fresh, new space for community activities.


Backyard Barbecue Store

Backyard Barbecue Store, located in the heart of Wilmette, is the premier outdoor grill and accessory store in the Midwest since May 2003. We are committed to offering the best in customer service, the best selection of quality grills and smokers, and the most knowledgeable staff. We also carry a wide array of BBQ tools and accessories, sauces and rubs, wood chips and charcoal. We also have an indoor/outdoor kitchen and event space where we host grill classes and private parties. You can rent our event space for any type of private event for up to 40 guests.

Compass’s stellar, forward-thinking technology allow Meg + Katie to be highly productive so they can spend their time doing what they love best: being with clients.  Their artistic backgrounds - Meg is a photographer and furniture maker, Katie is a writer and performer - give them a keen eye for detail and a knack for innovation. They roll up their sleeves and dig in! They will change your light bulbs and exceed your expectations.


Women's Exchange

Women’s Exchange (WE) is a unique community of women (and sometimes men) committed to growth and authentic connection. Be it through book discussions, building one’s financial skills, looking at life’s education, learning about health and wellness, writing together, creating together, walking together, learning and discerning, moving through transitions or simply making a change with a new thought or idea. Women’s Exchange is truly a place to be on the playground, getting off the proving ground through conversations that matter. Join in; discover something new for yourself and/or about yourself. From here, be more engaged in your relationships, community and beyond.

Be part of something BIG.
