THE TEDxBath TEAM
Our activities are coordinated by an independent and diverse team who are united by a desire to encourage positive change for our community.
Our day events are made possible by our brilliant team of volunteers.
There are also many people who have helped and supported TedxBath prior to the Covid-19 crisis who had to reprioritise their time and others that stepped in - we are grateful to you all.
"I have a vision to connect people in sharing ideas with their communities across the city and beyond."
"To support the promotion of creative engagement through imaginative exchange "
"To give something back to a platform that's long inspired me and to continue to develop professionally."
TEDxBath could not happen without our incredible volunteers in the lead up and on the day.
People give up their time and energy throughout the year and particularly in the days leading to the event be it curating speakers, setting up the stage and activities, managing the insurance or handing out the lunches. No job is too small to appreciate!
Thank you all.
x = independently organised event
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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
