About this event

The prime purpose of TEDxIIMTrichy is to build a powerful speaker program, seek out extraordinary voices in our local community who have a unique story or an unusual perspective and convey it in a dynamic way.

TEDxIIMTrichy aims at positioning the institute as a centre for sustainable development of existing ideas and breeding ground for creative new ideas. It would extend its impact to the ecosystem of Trichy of which the institute is an integral part. In doing so, we wish to bring together the unsung heroes of our locality and those who we believe have the potential to create a positive change in our society.
