TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall,Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, PhilippeStarck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. TED is owned by a not-for-profit foundation whose mission is simply to spread good ideas to the world. TED is also home of the famous TED Prize, which is awarded annually to an exceptional individual who receives $100,000 and, more importantly, “One Wish to Change the World.”
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx event, including ours, are self-organized.
