About TEDxStHelier

TEDxStHelier was our first ever TEDx in Jersey, and it was a great success.


Richard Noble OBEAgainst a background of today s low risk culture, Richard Noble specialises in developing high risk ventures. Obviously not all of them can be successful, but the Thrust2 programme which brought the World Land Speed Record back to Britain in 1983 and the Thrust SSC first car to travel faster than the speed of sound are the best known.Richard Noble s other projects include the ARV Super2 light aircraft, the Atlantic Sprinter Blue Riband contender and currently the 1,000 mph BLOODHOUND SSC, an international education initiative focused around building and running the ultimate jet and rocket powered racing car.

Got it done, and learned a lot for next time
Video quality is good
Managed to get 100 to attend, and more wanted to
Stayed in budget


Next time provide food (buffet?): it encourages people to attend and creates a welcome atmosphere
Next time involve schools earlier and be discerning who to involve: some promised lots and delivered nothing
Contact Head teachers and Students directly – politicians and intermediaries are unreliable
Need more sponsor & sponsorship to grow the event (quantity of audience and quality overall)
Over-reliance upon traditional media (BBC, CTV and Radio) and under-use of social media (FB, Twitter, Web etc)


Consider a 24/25 September “mini-event” linked to State Street sponsored Film Festival?
Consider a theme – like approach used by Guernsey
Involve more people and organisations, like Heritage & Schools
Consider student exchange, maybe with Glasgow?
Consider direct contact and involvement of students (via social media)
Consider shadow scheme for students to follow/support organisers
Have less frequent “organising team” meetings, but longer durations – get more done
Consider bigger, better venue for 2015
Start by applying to TEDx for 2015

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
