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).

Naman Berry

Naman Berry is an Indian Grade 12 student studying in ISHCMC in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Being in an International school, he had the chance to develop a lot of skills, hobbies and passion. One of them became public speaking. The feeling of being on stage and the feeling of relief after giving a speech was too good. He grew fond of it, started doing assemblies, speeches, presentations, workshops etc. and one after another, it became clear that most people are afraid of being on stage. He would later on come to know that Eye contact is what makes people nervous. He decided that he would help people get on stage and confidently give a talk and never give up on an opportunity to be on stage because they weren't confident enough to do it.
