WHAT IS TED?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.Follow TED on Twitter and Facebook.
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 TEDxSCBMCH, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSCBMCH event, TED Talks 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.

Our Theme- RESONATING RIPPLES!!!
"Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble drops into water, the actions of individuals have far reaching effects"- Dalai Lama
With the theme of "Resonating Ripples", we aim to let our audience witness the change-makers recounting their tales of persistence, perseverance, and ultimately excellence.
Not only do we intend to behold, but also to spark conversations between the speakers and listeners, so that everyone takes home something worth pondering over. Something, that might, someday, change the world as we know it.
Date- 2nd December
Event time- 2:00 pm onwards
