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).

Andrew Griffiths

Director of Digital & Community at The Planet Mark and IoD Ambassador
It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. But not all of us grow up with family business connections – so how can we each build a network of meaningful relationships to maximise our impact? Since becoming an Institute of Directors Ambassador 4 years ago, Andrew has become a prolific networker. He attributes every single opportunity that has come his way in recent years to meaningfully connecting with people both online and offline. How can we avoid empty transactional networking and nurture genuine human connection in our professional lives? Find out in this session.

After a career in business and consulting, Carl has migrated over to making a passion of his a full time job. He now teaches psychology to A-Level students. Everything you’ll see and hear during this presentation will have happened at least half a second earlier, which has profound implications for our view of ourselves, not least because it means we may be no more than passive observers within a unique virtual reality, being tricked into thinking we are ‘agents’ by neural pathways that antedate consciousness.
