TEDxKCMT is a program which is a local, self-organised event that brings people together to share a TED-like experience with a combination of live speakers and TED talks video, to spark inquisitiveness and inspiration within each mind. We aspire to provide platforms to noteworthy persons to share their experiences of conquering each CHECKS in their life's.
Our CHECKMATE refers to the "SO-CALLED" ultimate end in each one of our life's.
The purpose of choosing this theme is to help people who are in the end game and are looking for a way out. The game doesn't necessarily have to end when the opponent calls a 'check', instead, take it as a second chance at life to the King and strike back to 'CONQUER'.
