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).

Down to earth, Able has a kind yet vivacious personality, successfully balancing a family life with the glamorous world of celebrity. To put it into Able's own words, in all her work her aim is, "To spread happiness to all events or shows that I host and bring smiles to faces".

That's why today she easily switches between English, Cantonese and Thai - having chosen to make her home in Thailand.
