Panel 1

What is TED and TEDx?

What is TED?

TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. 

What is TEDx?

TEDx is the brand that independent organizers can licence from TED. TEDx events are independently run events that help share ideas in communities around the world. TEDx events are a global phenomenon, and Hawkes Bay has joined the global conversation through TEDxHastingsSt.

What attendees have said

I loved it! Well run, great speakers and right here in Hawke’s Bay. Felt inspired and fulfilled when I left. I especially liked how the speakers hung around in the foyer so we got to mingle and talk to them casually 🙂

Fulfilled Attendee, TEDxHastingsSt July 2018

The chance to meet and hear challenging presentations by excellent speakers and then to discuss and meet with local people who are concerned is a movement which meets the needs of our time.

Descriptive Attendee, TEDxHastingsSt July 2018

It was so inspiring! And since it is quite a small venue it was very a personal, relaxed atmosphere. Lots of questions going back and forth between speakers and audience. Big plus: speakers based or grown up in Hawke’s Bay.

Inspired Attendee, TEDxHastingsSt July 2018

It was an amazing experience, and one that people should not miss out on.
