Mark was invited to speak at the very first TEDx in Lawrence KS.
Mark was interviewed by BusinessJournalism.org on what it’s like to play with toys for a living. Articles on Mark keep getting more and more legitimate.
It’s true! Mark will be speaking at the TEDx conference in Lawrence Kansas on Monday March 23rd. The whole point of TED events is “Ideas Worth Spreading”, so this is some great validation for Mark, and proves that he’s not totally full of it. He will be doing a shortened version of his talk “A Yo-yo with a Broken String: How Failure Leads to Success.”
A live variety show. A hilarious talk show. A showcase of world-renowned comedy talent (and yo-yos)! Hosted by world yo-yo champion Mark Hayward and nationally-known physical comic Jonathan Burns! Special guests: Comedian Aaron Kleiber, Yo-yo Champion Ky Zizan.
Friday February 27th at 8:00pm
Arcade Comedy Theater, 811 Liberty Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15222
