In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Jacqueline Kwok

Jacqueline Kwok, or “JK”, is an INSEAD MBA student. She is something like an American-born Chinese, but actually grew up in (Taipei), Hong Kong and Beijing. She aspires to be like Beyoncé but her scoliosis prohibits her from properly shaking her booty. That has never stopped JK from dancing. On the flip side, she worked in Shanghai, China at a private equity firm for 4 years prior to joining INSEAD. Like everyone at INSEAD, JK enjoys traveling and overcoming culture shock. JK also has a gummy candy addiction at a clinical level, but balances it out with Muay Thai and, yes, hip hop dancing.
