About Us

As a society, We aim to organize TEDx University events at least once a year, along with TED Circles and TEDx Salon events. To allow students to speak their minds, share new ideas, inspire and inform the community. Each event will be organized by the society with the help of members, which will give them the unique experience of organizing and managing events. 

Who the **** is Ted? Well, here we are not implying to Mark Wahlberg’s cheeky teddy bear - though he gave a good TED talk –

we are talking about talks on Technology Entertainment and Design, and many more…..

If you haven’t heard of them yet, they are mainly short inspirational and, most importantly, amusing lectures from some of the world’s most encouraging and well-known thought leaders.

What is a TEDx event?

A TEDx event is a get-together where live TED-like talks and videos formerly filmed at TED conferences are shared with a group of people. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.

Imagine a day filled with talented speakers, thought-provoking videos and mind-blowing discussions. We will do far more than organise and host the TEDx event every year. Come join the team of wonderful people and get a chance to work on your leadership, management and public speaking skills. You will be involved in hosting and planning different TEDx events. And if you’re more interested to be the audience, members will get discounted tickets for the events.

Here are 10 reasons that will motivate you to start your own “Journey to TEDx”!!!

  1. Giving a winning TEDx talk instantly positions you as an authority and expert in your field.

  2. A TEDx talk gives you a chance to inspire a global audience with a brilliant idea that changes their worldview or persuades them to take action.

  3. A well-scripted talk combined with the powerful medium of online video allows you not only to share your message but also to transmit your energy, often making a lasting impact on viewers.

  4. Providing high visibility and instant credibility, a successful TEDx talk is the new PR that can help you get massive exposure and a loyal following for a minimal investment of time and resources.

  5. Just imagine, for 18 magical minutes (or less) you get to seduce the world with your brilliant idea!

  6. TEDx talks are irresistible. People watch them on their lunch breaks or before bed when they want an inspiring idea to mull over or to go to sleep with.

  7. Being a TEDx speaker allows you to connect with people's deep-rooted desire to create a better future. Inspire them!

  8. TEDx talks have a noble purpose: they help to raise global consciousness by presenting ideas that otherwise might have stayed in the dark.

  9. Everyone loves the spirit of TED, which is to unite the world around powerful ideas!

  10. In a world of ever more specialized knowledge, we all need to spend more time learning from each other so we can co-create a better future.
