Final countdown for TEDx Auckland
Posted on 22-Jul-2013 13:00 | Tags Filed under: News



It’s just over two weeks before 17 inspiring New Zealanders take to the Aotea Centre stage for TEDx Auckland. So if you haven’t already, grab some tickets and make Saturday 3 August a day to remember.

Following the sell-out success of last year’s event, TEDx Auckland 2013 will again showcase great ideas from across New Zealand’s cultural, social, scientific and creative communities. The quality and variety of ideas is guaranteed to challenge, inform and inspire everyone who attends.

Tickets are on sale here from $70 and this year there will be no door sales

Two weeks into speaker rehearsal, TEDx Auckland Content Director Vaughn Davis says it’s hard to pick a favourite talk: “It’s not just comparing apples with oranges… more like apples with quadratic equations. They’re all so different. We’ve got one of New Zealand’s top dentists talking about leadership, a provincial mayor with an idea that could transform small towns all over the world, a revolutionary discovery in brain science – we’ve even got the world’s most advanced artificial brain!”

Also among the day’s 16 speakers will be UNDP Administrator Helen Clark, creator of the world’s longest waterslide Jimi Hunt and Wiki NZ founder Lillian Grace. Joining them will be performance artists including poets, musicians and legendary Maori traditional instrumentalist Richard Nunns.

If you enjoy having your thinking challenged, discovering great ideas or just sharing the day (and the free after-party) with a room full of like-minded people, TEDx Auckland is an event you won’t want to miss."
