The theme of TEDxHKUST 2014 is Catalysing Change. This year’s event will focus on the stories of some spectacular individuals in our society who have brought about a paradigm shift in our society today and have catalyzed some tremendous (and much-needed) changes. They refused to be phased by any challenges they had to face and persisted against all kinds of forces to turn their aspirations into reality.

We have put together a line-up of unique individuals that come from a diverse range of backgrounds but share one train in common: refusing to back down and settle for the norm. From providing asylum to refugees to directing Shakespearean productions on stage, from crossing the Gobi Desert on foot in order to raise money for educating Mongolian children to negotiating multi-million dollar deals for major corporations, our speakers will discuss topics that will make everlasting impressions and leave you immensely inspired.
