TEDxSITM - 21st February 2015A man may die, nation may rise & fall, but an idea lives on"
Idea was born since the beginning of humankind. One idea has changed lives of many. From Stone Age to digital age, from discovery of America to liberation of India, from Newton's apple to Steve Job's Apple, from pigeon post to emailing, everything changed just with the spark of an idea. Have we ever imagined how our lives would have been if we are to communicate without a phone, to travel without a car, to get entertained without a television or capture memories without a camera. Thanks to "Idea" for making life easier. And today, the only word that brings two distinct souls, that is, TEDx & Symbiosis Institute of Telecom Management together with TEDxSITM is:
An amalgamation of the world's best ideas, each initiating the next, resulting in a chain reaction of success. This is precisely what we seek to do at TEDxSIULavale . From , "An Eye for I" in 2012 to " Together Towards Transition" in 2014 ,we aim to explore new ideas, stimulating imagination, and encouraging innovation, getting inspiration, and thereby enhancing Entrepreneurial ability with the flair for motivation, vision, spark and creativity.
Every story of success began as a thought, an experience, and an epiphany. TEDxSITM brings to you the inspiration that spurred one person's success with the hope that you find your own.
What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.
TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, 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 TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to organize local, independent TED-like events around the world, and the TEDFellows 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.
What is 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 organized 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.)
