What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxVIPS, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxVIPS event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDTalks are something that we’re all familiar with. Be it a TED event, or a TEDx event, the idea that how an “achiever” starts his journey and shares his experiences with others, pushing them to test their limits is really very gripping.
TEDxVIPS is a robust initiative by us the students of Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies, in an attempt to bring the enlightening and exhilarating vibe that the event offers to our college students. Anything involving the event, right from planning the smallest bit to its implementation brings us to a new learning curvature, and we thoroughly are enjoying it.
Also, just so you know, yes this is our first time hosting the event, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be hustling hard. You know what they say, “people come and go, but the grind never stops….”
See you at the event.
