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 TEDxGuelphU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGuelphU event, TEDTalks 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.

You can learn more about TEDx here.

Note: This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
