Brace yourself and prepare to inspire your senses by experiencing TEDx Salford, to be launched for the first time ever in MediaCityUK on 28 January 2012.
This is the first TEDx event at Salford and at this conference, we aim to celebrate brilliance, diversity, exchange intellectually nutritious information and engage in an inspirational experience.
TED is a global foundation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading which brings together some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers share what they are most passionate about. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design – three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future.
Since then, its scope has become ever broader, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline– science, arts, politics, global issues, media, architecture, music and much more. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain spa” and “a journey into the future.” The diverse audience — CEOs, scientists, philanthropists — is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, etc.
So, what is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
Showcasing the phenomenal potential of human achievements to dazzling technology and leading-edge science to the richest forms of creativity and intelectually nutritious information - Join us in this spectacular program where we are assembling our most exemplary and diverse group of speakers and entertainers, with just this in common - they have something remarkable to share and are able to share it in a remarkable way!
