Following the success of last year’s event, TEDxSalford returns to share TED’s trademark brand of inspiration and informative thinking with the people of Salford and Manchester. Showcasing a broad range of speakers with Ideas Worth Spreading – this year’s event is set to be brimming with the creative, innovative and motivational zest that make TED events so uniquely delightful.
With Salford now being home to Media City UK, this locally organised TEDx event allows organisers and audiences alike to show off the city as the innovative hub it is becoming for the creative and digital sectors. TEDxSalford is demonstrating that Salford believes in the power of ideas.
This year you can expect to experience talks from a whole host of speakers. All of whom have led interesting lives and careers, leading them to have unique insights, experiences and ideas to share with the audience. All our speakers can be expected to fulfil the TED ideal and offer up an extraordinary feast of diverse and stimulating topics, that will leave our guests intellect satisfyingly full.
Finally with TEDx Speakers having a reputation for passionately engaging with their audience, don’t be surprised if you walk away feeling invigorated, inspired and enriched after the event.
