“During TEDxUNB, Greg Hemmings provided a captivating presentation on the power of film and storytelling, highlighting a documentary his film company, Hemmings House, created on the influence of music studies for underprivileged youth in Venezuela. The theme of the TEDx event was ‘Igniting the Spark’ and I can say with full confidence Greg did just that, leaving the room incredibly inspired.”
