Arthur C. Clarke famously observed that advanced technology is "indistinguishable from magic”. He also said that the only way to discover the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them, into the impossible.

Beyond technology, there is the magic that leaves us in states of marvel, such as in a work of art, a groundbreaking scientific discovery or a new business venture. And then there is the simple magic of humanity, when we witness individuals and groups who spark awe-inspiring change of not just people, but of entire societies and value systems.

TEDxLondonBusinessSchool 2014 is going to take you on a journey of discovering the impossible and unmasking all aspects of magic. Our full day of talks will look at the past, present and future of innovation in technology, business, media, music, science and more!

Join us at TEDxLondonBusinessSchool 2014, where we will bring together some of the most adventurous, innovative and imaginative thinkers, makers and doers out there to uncover, explore and push the limits of the impossible and share new ideas on magic, in all its forms.
