TIMES SQUARE — The Great White Way takes a look toward the future next month.

On Friday, Nov. 1, the Times Center at 242 W. 41st Street will host Times Square's second TEDx conference. With a title of "Transformation | Driving Change," the event will feature 10 speakers reflecting on change in business, the arts and other professions. They include ShareThis.com CEO Kurt Abrahamson, Global Business Development vice president Itzhak Fisher, MacMillan Publishing CEO John Sargent, Times Square Alliance president Tim Tompkins and United Way president and CEO Sheena Wright.

Tickets cost $99 and can be purchased on the event website.

"Transformation | Driving Change" marks Times Square's second TEDx, an independently organized conference based on the format developed by TED, the enormously popular speaker series on Technology, Entertainment and Design.

The first Times Square TEDx, "Openness," was held at the Times Center on April 10.
