After attending a Tedx event at the houses of Parliament, Fiona was inspired to hold a TEDX event at Esher. Shai and Heather, who have also been inspired by the talks given at TED conferences, freely available at the website TED.com, became involved in this. The aim was to encourage students from Esher to share their experiences on stage with adult speakers.
The theme “Define possible” was taken from an individual who was severely disabled yet managed to reach the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. This was his message when he reached the summit. It is a phrase that embodies so many of the achievements of students at Esher as they stretch themselves in the two years that they spend here.
