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. TEDx is a program where live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. TEDx grants free licenses to like-minded individuals around the world to organize a TED style event to share ideas and foster innovation. Our event is called TEDxGLIMChennai, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGLIMChennai event, TEDTalks 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.
TEDxGLIMChennai is an independently organized TEDx event hosted by Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai. TEDxGLIMChennai’ 2022 “Crossroads” was held as a virtual event on 13th March, 2022. The event showcased 5 speakers from diverse backgrounds who shared their views and ideas to an audience of over 200 participants. The theme "Crossroads" talks about the tough choices that come up in everyone's life and how the path you choose makes you who you are today. This year, we celebrated the stories of those titans, who conquered these crossroads. TEDxGLIMChennai is a non-profit event, and its purpose is to promote inter- cultural intellectual sharing and networking of people with different backgrounds, and diverse locations.
