Some of you may wonder who turns the working dials of TEDxUniversityofGlasgow. Perhaps you are curious about what it is, exactly, that we do. Maybe you are planning to apply for one of our Brand Ambassador positions and you would like to see your future TEDx teammates. Whatever stimulates your curiosity, hopefully this post will give you a little insight into what we do, who we are, and what makes us tick.
Throughout the year, we work in six sub-teams to bring together our main annual conference. We also organise Salon events for the University of Glasgow community.
Each team has character as well as some characters within it ! Have a closer look at the team in the photoshoot (button below) or investigate further in the blog to find out why each of us became so interested in TEDxUofG.
What is TEDx ?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDxUniversityofGlasgow is a platform for expressing innovations, encouraging thought, creativity, and collaboration. Come and experience the Open Auditions for TEDxUniversityofGlasgow 2018 ! The event will be created at the start of January 2018. In the meantime, why not check out the speakers from last year ?
