About TED

TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is an annual global conference where highly acclaimed thought leaders present their ideas by engaging the audience in the most innovative manner while keeping up with the mission of the organization i.e. ideas worth spreading.

The ‘X’ in TEDx refers to an independently organized TED event, it is designed to help communities and organizations generate new ideas, converse and build a connection through local TED-like experiences.

At TEDx Glim Gurgaon we seek to boost creativity and broaden perspectives with respect to changing trends and promote an open mind to the journey of one’s life. Much like the titular hero ‘Odysseus’, our speakers have lived epics of their own that are full of trials and tribulations. Like most heroes they were helped along the way by a greater purpose, perseverance and loyalty. We hope that their tales help you carve out your own legacy.
