TEDxDBShk is back for its third iteration! The theme for this year's event is 'Trailblazer' - A person who walks first, heading not on explored paths, but instead creating a new trail for others to walk upon, lighting the path for others to follow. Join us at Diocesan Boys' School on the 29th of March, 2019, to hear inspirational ideas from scientists, entrepreneurs, and pioneers. We hope to see you there!
