TEDx events are events where professionals from various fields are brought to share their stories, with a theme in mind. Sometimes, people might want to mistake it for a Conference or seminar, but it is none. The speakers and the audience come together to share great ideas.
What makes it different is that you will learn from the professionals, what it took to get to where they are. Stories of what they have gone through in their life and still succeeded.
Networking opportunities are available for both the speakers and participants. Remember, most persons that come for this event already share the same values with you.
TED started as the mother brand, but in a quest to spread all through the world, they started granting licenses to people to organize similar events in their local areas. When organizing these local events, the speakers are mostly professionals within the area. It is these local events that now have an ‘x’ attached to it.
Some examples of TEDx events I’ve attended include, TEDxNzastreet, TEDxAwka, TEDxBissallaRD, and I look forward to TEDxAsata. For young students who want to build their personal brands, they have a lot to learn from these events.
