What is TED?

The history of TED started in 1984 with the convergence of Technology, Entertainment and Design. Since 2006 TED has been available online and is a collection of over 2000 talks. Each talk is just five to 18 mins long and a new talk is added every week day. You can watch them all, for free, anytime.

At TEDxTauranga every 15 minute component on stage will be different from the next:

One might make you think
Another, cry
Another, change the way you live
Another, motivate you to tell others
Another, change your mind about something you’ve always believed
Another, expose you to something you never knew could be so interesting

TEDx audiences describe the talks as one or more of the following:

  • Persuasive
  • Courageous
  • Ingenious
  • Fascinating
  • Inspiring
  • Beautiful
  • Funny
  • Informative
