TEDxGUL is an official TEDx Talk taking place here at University of London, Goldsmiths. The Debating society has organized this event as a public speaking conference with the support of the student’s union.

The event is to consist of speakers ranging from entrepreneurs to researchers. The primary goal of the event is to spread ideas. To enlighten our audience to a world of possibilities.

Many of the speakers for TEDxGUL are University of London, Goldsmiths lecturers and alumni. This talk is an excellent opportunity to present Goldsmiths on the world stage.

Ideas create visions which lead to prospect. We want to bring a community together to experience an eye awakening and ground-breaking event. Most of our speakers are researchers within Goldsmiths because we want to give them a platform in which they can show their originality while demonstrating the values of Goldsmiths.
