Shiv Nadar University, Greater Noida, is back with the third edition of its annual TEDx conference. TED, which stands for Technology Entertainment Design, is a non-profit organization devoted to ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’ and TEDx was created in the spirit of that very mission. At TEDx events, a combination of live presenters and TED Talk videos spark deep conversation and connections at a local level.
The University has seen two extremely successful editions in the past two years, and this year seems to be no different. The organizing team is working extremely hard to get prolific speakers from all walks of life on board, and already are in talks with a few exciting speakers. The speakers will be revealed very soon.
In the meantime, let’s have a look at some of the speakers that graced the stage the last two years. The first conference, held in November, 2016, saw the likes of visionaries like Pernia Qureshi, Indian fashion entrepreneur, Dr. Shivkumar Kalyanaraman, Chief Scientist of IBM, Karuna Nundy, one of the most prolific lawyers of the Supreme Court, and many more who fostered the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation in students and at the same time inspired the audience.
The second edition of the conference, held in 2017, saw an increase in the scale and magnitude the event was held on. With speakers like Sriram Raghvan, Director of IBM India, Shreya Soni, founder of the Delhi Secret Supper Club, Zorian Cross, a multi-award- winning actor and playwright, the organizers left no stone unturned to provide a platform to visionaries of diverse backgrounds to spread ideas.
This year, too, the organizers aim to host an “Out of the blue” conference, with ideas that are bound to leave you pondering long after the conference ends. So make sure to mark the date on your calendars: 18th November, 2018, only at Shiv Nadar University, Dadri, to witness a spectacular amalgamation of ideas and visions that are going to leave you spellbound.
