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)

    I benefited from your easy accent whereas I could understand almost 75% of your speach. Thanks a lot.

  4. Ronald Gamble sagt:

    Could have been said with fewer words. There are many TEDx videos that would not be so boring if the speakers hadn’t used so many unneeded words.

  5. Is that lady? criticising? Australian?

  6. Martin Alexander sagt:

    „You have to be authentic, you have to be yourself.“

    Loved her speech and the effort she was putting in, until she said that and went completely against what she was doing.

  15. Lisa Pope sagt:

    Ted talks get fluffier and more useless by the second

  16. Doug Smith sagt:

    Lost respect when she got the details about Thatcher so wrong. She wasn’t the first female member of parliament.

  17. LEONG KING YEW sagt:

    She sounded a little nervous & little self conscious but still appreciate the speech and I’ve learned

  18. Maricelia Moura sagt:

  21. If you want to make an even better entrance: pronounce your last name first (low) then your first name (high) and then again your last name (low)

  22. SanCHEneering sagt:

  23. Christopher Franko sagt:

    „im not acting“ bs lol. This delivery was so robotic.

  24. clara.hav sagt:

    Jakob Lawrence
    Awesome that’s how I’ve pronounced it for as long as I remember. 😀

  25. Jakob Lawrence sagt:

    To save you 15 minutes: pronounce your first name with a higher pitch and last name with a lower pitch.
