TEDxIIMShillong is an independently organized TED event operated under license from TED. At the conference we will showcase some of the eminent speakers from different spheres of life who will share their unique ideas and experiences with us. Such ideas will spark and ignite discussions among the attendees who will be present at the event. We seek to bring together the community and promote the power of ideas. Being the first TEDxIIMShillong we strive to make it a great success for the future editions to come. The theme of our event is Challenging Convention where we look to hear speakers address issues with a different approach - something different, something unique and something out of the box.
