More speakers announced for TEDxAuckland
Posted on 6-Jun-2013 12:23. | Tags Filed under: News.



TEDxAuckland is shaping up to be another catalytic event with four more inspirational New Zealanders set to take the stage.

The August event will present a diverse range of speakers that will ignite conversation, encourage new thinking and expose attendees to world-changing ideas from the minds of New Zealand’s top artists, educators, technologists and scientists.

With tickets now on sale and anticipation building, event organiser Elliott Blade believes TEDxAuckland has both the momentum and talent to build on the success of last year’s event.

“Too often New Zealanders look overseas for inspiration, forgetting that a raft of world-changing ideas are being developed in our own backyard. TEDxAuckland is focussed on bringing together the best talent New Zealand has to offer to inspire attendees with tales of home grown innovation, success and passion.”

Newly announced speakers for this year’s event include iconic New Zealand furniture and lighting designer, David Trubridge; award-winning documentary director of Finding Mercy, Robyn Paterson; sustainability specialist and co-founder of ecostore, Malcolm Rands; and poet, teaching artist and creative entrepreneur, Grace Taylor.

These inspiring individuals will present their ideas alongside chef and award-winning author Robert Oliver; Mayor of Otorohanga and motorcycle enthusiast Dale Williams; and educator, entrepreneur and founder of the Hika programs Sophie Tauwehe Tamati.

TEDxAuckland will take place on Saturday, 3 August in the Aotea Centre. A wide range of speakers are set to take part in the full day event. A complete speaker line up will be announced in July.
