TEDx Memphis: August 29th

SHARE

TEDx is a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading intelligence, ideas, and inspiration throughout the world. Twenty-six years ago in 1986, the brilliance of TEDTalks was born in California with the idea of bringing the world’s leading thinkers and doers to the stage. In 18 minutes or less, these impactful men and women are asked to give a speech on their lives and their success as professionals.

Although the three major TED events held each year take place Vancouver, British Columbia, and Scotland, the TEDx initiative grants free licenses to people around the world to organize TED-style events in their communities, already allowing for more than 5,000 TED events to be held.

Get ready, eager learners and educators, TED talks is coming to Memphis, and bringing you 17 of the worlds most inspirational speakers.
