“It’s about the human journey and the possibilities. It’s about what could be.” – Dave Lim, Founder TEDx Singapore
So the TEDx Singapore team came by the Google office, starting with a keynote by Dave Lim, one of the first 36 TEDx organizers globally. Dave raised the following key points on what TED is about:
- All knowledge is connected
- TED is a global phenomenon
- Unexpected ideas, inspiration, innovation
Over six years, TED has produced 60,000 talks available online and on YouTube. A full TED conference is five days, with about 50-60 speakers.
Guest speakers @ TEDx at Google:
- Chan Chow Wah: Author of ‘Light on the Lotus Hill’
- Jerry Ong: Bringing nature into the hospital environment with KTPH
- Michelle Lim: Ceramicist, craftsperson, maker
I can’t reveal here what they spoke about, so to know more, you have to come by the TEDx Singapore event!
- November 6-7
- 30 speakers over 1.5 days
I’ll be there and hopefully able to take notes on what I’ve learned.
