This is TEDxThapaeGate's 2nd event, featuring brand new talks direct from TED 2012 Conference in California (Day 2, Sessions below), plus discussions breaks and networking opportunities.
"We're in the midst of a dramatic reinvention of the ancient art of the spoken word. The surprising spread of talks online and the explosion of TEDx events around the globe are testament to that.
TED2012 celebrates this phenomenon and nudges it a further step forward. Full Spectrum is a term adapted to mean the rich use of multiple technologies, formats and approaches for the most powerful possible impact on an audience.
There could be: blizzards of images, new uses of music, extravagant use of under-used senses, intricate choreography between speaker and screen, new ways of involving the audience, breakthroughs in animation, and intense, campfire-style storytelling
TED2012 will be a key next step in the evolution of TED.
Amidst the quest to propel forward the art of live presentation, we won't forget the most important things that TED's about:
Inspiration. Wonder. Authenticity. A hunger to learn.
