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).

Lizi Liklikadze

Graphic Designer
Lizi Liklikadze was born in 2001 in Tbilisi, Georgia, amid a period when the quality of life in Georgia was still quite poor. Her parents, writer Lela Zhorzholiani and journalist Koba Liklikadze, were offered the opportunity by Radio Liberty to live more fulfilling lives in the Czech Republic after the Russo-Georgia War in 2008, in recognition of her father's bravery in risking his life to document the truths of the war. Relocating to the Czech Republic introduced Lizi to an international environment, exposing her to diverse cultures, perspectives, and an elevated quality of life previously unexplored. Graduating from the Prague British International School in 2019, Lizi went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts in 2023 with a specialization in graphic design. Lizi's artistic passions, including singing and acting in Prague theaters, propelled her into a successful artistic career during university, and she is now in the process of founding her own theater company.

Tom Riley

IB Student
Tom Riley, 17, does not yet have a doctorate. He is not yet a CEO of a Forbes 500 company, nor has he yet discovered his philanthropic purpose in life. What he is though, at this stage, is an enthusiastic and ambitious International Baccalaureate student at PBIS, where his main interests of study are History, Business Management and English Language & Literature. Outside of school, Tom works part-time as an English teacher at an internationally renowned language-school, where he shares his curiosity and desire to learn with his young students. Tom balances his intellectual endeavours with a life-long passion for football, having actively played since the age of 4. His biggest achievement is captaining the youth team of his local football club to their first league title in over a decade, and he hopes to soon achieve similar successes in other spheres of life, with his eyes set on various humanities courses at some of the world’s most prestigious universities.
