Since its inception in 2013, TEDxIIMShillong has grown from strength to strength, with some exemplary ideas being presented on stage. In a short span of five years, TEDxIIMShillong has crafted a remarkable niche for itself; previous editions have been graced by a wide array of marquee speakers who have left the audience invigorated with their ingenuity and novel ideas. The second edition was globally recognized by the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation as one of the top TEDx events in the Emerging Economies.
With this edition, we would like to take this legacy forward. Today, you'll be listening to an exceedingly diverse set of speakers, all of whom are united by a common thread - an idea that needed empowering. A number of ideas remain just that - ideas. A majority of prospective innovators are never able to move beyond the stage of ideation. With today's event, we present to you the doers - the individuals who have braved it all and travelled the mile.
We are currently in a time where little things can make a world of difference. All those who can identify those little things can bring about a revolution. Thinking out of the box and having a fresh perspective can help both solve an old problem, as well as come up with a solution we didn't even know we needed. Finding that spark, generating that traction, and using that special something is what can make you extraordinary. It is this power of the extraordinary that we aim to underscore with this edition's theme, 'The 53rd Card'. TEDxIIMShillong 2018 looks to transform, combine and create ideas to create a platform that invigorates new thought and inspires change. With this event, we encourage you to be motivated, and to be inspired, to look both within yourself, and at the world around you, to take your ideas forward through the power of choices that you make.
