As a business owner or entrepreneur, attending conferences and events aimed around business is part of keeping up with current trends and ideas. Learning and exploring new ideas can grow your business and inspire you to make much needed changes.
TED is a non-profit organisation, devoted to spreading ideas; usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984, as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design collaborated, and today covers almost all topics including science, business and global issues. Their talks are available in over 100 languages. TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every walk of life, who seek a deeper understanding of the world. They believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately; the world.
