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).

Masahiko Kato

He is a father of two daughters. Due to the bubble burst, the architecture company he had been working for faced bankruptcy crisis. So he changed a job and started working at a fishery company which was totally different from his previous one and engaged in selling. Then, as a result of his effort, he became a manager of buyers and salespersons at the top store in sales at that time. Because he carried out events of vegetables directly from the farm and organized multiple popular events as differentiation strategies, he caught the attention of a lot of the media as a “charismatic buyer”.
