We’ve got new experiences for you... in addition to screening awe-inspiring TED Talks followed by a discussion, we have:
- Your personal “Inspire / Change" card to give you a daily reminder of the changes you get inspired to make at the event
- The “Curiosity Wall” where you can post your thoughts about the theme of the day as you sip a coffee and mingle with other Curious Minds before the event starts
- A live stream of the discussion to the big screen so people can see who’s talking - it's a trippy experience
- Curious Mind Speed Connect - a post-event session where you can take your discussion to a deeper level (registration required)

We’ll be experimenting with new things at every event… so stay tuned
