Theme: Unconventional Wisdom
Cambridge, United Kingdom

About this event
When we are young doing a headstand is easy. Even if we have never done it before.
Especially because we have never done it before.
Our limbs are more flexible and our courage intact. We are devoid of judgement and packed with curiosity, embracing every chance to try something new with only the slightest pause for thought. Everything is New. Everything is Wonderful. Everything is Great. Nothing is set in stone and we are not set in our ways.
As we grow older, our muscles and minds become less agile, alongside our lion heart courage to dare to ask “Why?” We begin to accept social constructions as universal truths. And embrace the conventional.
In a time were social institutions are faltering and dogmas are being reinvented, we invite you to join us in questioning everything. In daring to turn the industry, the world and yourself on your head. Together we’re sure we can learn how to do headstands again, and see things differently.
Join us in turning the conventional upside down.
TEDxOxbridge is an independent collaboration between Judge Business School, University of Cambridge and Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. Celebrating and continuing nearly 800 years of interdisciplinary excellence, we hope this new tradition will foster rich connections and conversations through inspiring talks, great food, entertaining videos and passionate performances.
