TEDxSingapore's 14th event, featured brand new talks direct from TED 2012 Conference in California, plus a full spectrum of community activities and conversation breaks.

We're in the midst of a dramatic reinvention of the ancient art of the spoken word. The surprising spread of talks online and the explosion of TEDx events around the globe are testament to that.

TED2012 celebrated this phenomenon and nudged it a further step forward. Full Spectrum is a term adapted to mean the rich use of multiple technologies, formats and approaches for the most powerful possible impact on an audience.

These were: blizzards of images, new uses of music, extravagant use of under-used senses, intricate choreography between speaker and screen, new ways of involving the audience, breakthroughs in animation, and intense, campfire-style storytelling

TED2012 was the key next step in the evolution of TED.

Amidst the quest to propel forward the art of live presentation, the most important things that TED's about:

Inspiration. Wonder. Authenticity. A hunger to learn.

We bring people together to seek a deeper understanding of ourselves and our world, and to inspire ideas and action for a better future for us all. Founded in April 2009, we are 100% Community-Created. Express your passion for ideas and inspiration with millions of people around the world and over 11,000 people online in Singapore.
