You made a decision; Then you ran, you practiced.
Congratulations! Now you have transformed your idea into action.
Then what?

This year in TEDxIzmit''Peki Ya Next? ' Subjective and in-depth Before anything else, He will drive the journey of discovery for a topic. A few sentences will be added to the life line with the motto "'ideas worth sharing".

Before Everything: Speakers who will go to this "before everything else" will tell you that the courage to start work is the key to success. He will share the secret of opening the lock. You will witness that your difficult age is over.

Oen: Second and last session. In the first session we said "it is difficult to start." We noticed that everything did not come on its own. Whilst the speakers talk to you about what kind of obstacles they encounter and how they solve it, you will continue to try to get the little clues and keep in mind the same question.

When all is over at the end of the day, you will be left alone with a single question.
Then what?
