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.

With a combination of pre-recorded TEDTalks video and live speakers, each an expert within their respective fields, we, the Organising Committee of TEDxRamaiahMedicalCollege extend a warm invitation to interested individuals as we explore the theme of "Incite. Insight." and celebrate the unlimited potentials of the human spirit.
