In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx, a program created under the aegis of TED has facilitated local, self- organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience and help spread ideas in communities around the world.
The riveting talks delivered and the discussion generated by the ideas put across by the esteemed speakers, interspersed with TED Videos and live performances made for a very engaging experience for all attendees, who were completely enthralled.
