With less than two months to go till TEDxSquareMile 2015 we’ve been busy with preparations to ensure that this year’s event is the best yet. We’ve now got a total of eight confirmed speakers for the event, including dating guru Hayley Quinn, polar explorer John Dennis, Octavius Black of Mind Gym and renowned spiritual leader and philanphropist, Radhanath Swami. You can find out more about each of these in the ‘Speakers’ section of our website. Check back soon for more exciting speaker announcements.
Tickets are now on sale
The other big development here at TEDxSquareMile is that tickets are now available for sale! You can find out more and snap yourself up a ticket here. They’re selling quickly so act now if you’re planning on attending the event on November 28th.
As the preparations move up a gear, the organisation team is hard at work with a good many tasks, from securing sponsors to sorting out the t-shirts for volunteers to wear on the day. We’ve also welcomed many new faces onto the team and are looking forward to the unique contributions that each of these have to make.
The power of connection
Getting connected is not only the theme of our event, it’s the cause of it. The progress that we have made so far is down to the fact that we, formerly a group of strangers from a huge variety of backgrounds, have connected with each other to work together to make this thing happen. As a team we have connected with leading figures across a broad spectrum, who will provide the informational and inspirational banquet that awaits at the end of November. Now we’d like to offer you the chance to connect too, as an audience member for our event – because let’s face it, without an audience it would just be a bunch of mammals on stage uselessly expelling warm air. Don’t forget to grab your ticket, and if you’ve got any ideas for how you’d like the event to be, do let us know in the comments box below.
