Speakers ready to inspire at TEDxAuckland
TEDxAuckland is bringing together several of New Zealand’s most interesting minds for a full day of stimulating talks, discussions and learning this October.

Now less than two months away, TEDxAuckland will expose attendees to thought-provoking, world-changing ideas from New Zealand’s top scientists, artists, educators and technologists.

Event organiser Elliott Blade hopes this year’s event will be the beginning of an inspiring relationship between New Zealanders and the TEDx platform.

“It will be a great day of dynamite presentations from eighteen of New Zealand’s brightest. The event will present a diverse mix of speakers - both familiar names and emerging talent – that we hope will ignite some great conversation and encourage people to discover new ideas.”

Speakers in this year’s line-up include physicist, decathlete and political advisor Sean Gourley; change development specialist Paul Wood; physicist and pursuer of the Higgs boson ‘god particle’ David Krofcheck; materials and biomedical engineer Michelle Dickinson; internationally recognised architect Andrew Patterson; director of surgical research at Auckland Hospital and co-founder of medical start-up SIMTICs John Windsor; art director of Apropos and founder of the 100 Days Project Emma Rogan; CEO of Arvus Group Matthew Simmons; and dental surgeon and founder of ICARE Assil Russell.

TEDxAuckland will take place on Saturday 6 October at the ASB Theatre in the Aotea Centre. Eighteen speakers are set to take part in the full day event which will run from 10.00am until 5.30pm. A complete speaker line up will be announced in early September.

TEDxAuckland is sponsored by Yellow, Kordia, New Zealand Post, Sony, Powershop, Scoop Media Cartel, Digital Arts Network, Flitter and Deafradio.

Tickets are now available for purchase from The Edge.
