TEDxSydney’s ten year anniversary conference is going to be brought to Byron by satellite as it happens on Friday, May 24. This will be followed up by a day of facilities workshops to assist participants to harness their ideas and take action.

TEDxSydney is one of the largest TEDx events in the world and a gold standard on the global TEDx stage say Byron’s organisers Justine Dorrell and Laura Peck.

‘Imagine a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking video and mind-blowing conversation. That is what an experience at TEDxSydney conference is! It’s an event that gathers interesting people in the community to be a part of a unique day that unleashes new ideas and has the purpose to inspire and inform,’ say the organisers.

The theme for this TEDx is Legacy and what inspires you now for your legacy while the Byron event is billed as ‘Ignite Your Inspiration’ and will facilitate innovative discussions and networking as part of the live-streamed all-inclusive day.

The TEDxSydney Flagship event is broken up into four sessions that take place in a theatre whereby you are exposed to a line-up of speakers and performers that cover the topics of science, business, technology, art, design, entertainment, culture and more.

‘We can guarantee you will leave on a high, buzzing with ideas, motivation, enthusiasm and purpose,’ say Ms Dorrell and Ms Peck.

The second day is made up of participants coming together in a series of workshops that bring your ideas to life and put together an activation plan. There will be three facilitators to guided participants through next steps to take their ideas and projects forward.

You can book either one or two day tickets at Ignite Your Inspiration.
