This will be the first TEDx event in North Wales. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
Capitalism is always touted as being the most successful driver of the economy;
but actually that’s a myth. It’s human ingenuity.
The world is changing. We are in the midst of a perfect storm of social, environmental and economic challenges aimed squarely at the trembling status quo.
Is this too much of a challenge for the human species?
Not if human innovation and creativity is let loose on the challenges we all face.
The TEDxHolyhead ‘Brave New World’ event, is bringing together for the day, an impressive array of international change agents, leaders and local entrepreneurial talent, to share ideas on stage in an easy to assimilate twenty minute format. The event is being produced by a collaboration of academics, clinicians, students, social entrepreneurs, local businesses, charities, managers, coaches. In fact people from every level and sector of society have contributed to create a platform for transformation.
Furthermore, to ensure continuity after the event, there will be follow up conversations and events so TEDxHolyhead can act as a true catalyst for change.
Seating is limited to 100 people so register your interest immediately.
Once the event is over, the talks are then loaded onto the main TEDx website, where they will be made available to the world.

About TEDx, x = independently organized 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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organ
ized 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 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.
TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
