WHAT IS TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUQ, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxUQ event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.TEDxUQ is an independent organisation created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading”

SPEAKERS

2019 Speaker

The opportunity to present our ideas to the public and meet so many outstanding individuals from such a wide range of disciplines.

2018 Speaker

The excitement of the day was a highlight for me. The buzz of the speakers hanging out backstage putting in their last bits of practice. Not just listening but getting to discuss more deeply the concepts they were sharing and why they were important to them.

2019 Speaker

Speaking at TEDxUQ was an exhilarating experience. Unless you’ve done one before, or spoken to someone who has, you don’t realize the amount of effort and preparation that goes into a TEDx talk. The team at TEDxUQ were fantastic in working us through the process, keeping us on track, and providing outstanding training.
