Based on the success of last year’s event, another TEDxOrenda will take place in the APEX HALL at OLYMPIA, LONDON on WEDNESDAY 12th JANUARY from 6pm as part of the evening events at BETT 2011.
This is an unprecedented opportunity for educationalists to be inspired by and contribute to discussions, debates and presentations featuring speakers and topics chosen by other educationalists.
If you want to see what went on last year, you can view the videos of last years speakers here.
Like last year, the event is being put together by Drew Buddie (@digitalmaverick) who is an expert in cajoling and wrangling speakers to offer their time for free to speak at the event. Speakers are being announced one-by-one over the next few days, and the list currently includes:
- Marc Lewis – Dean of the School of Communication Arts
- Naomi Jane – Director of the 4WD Foundation
- Vinay Gupta – developer of the Hexayurt
- Alex Fleetwood – Director of Hide and Seek
- Sydney Padua – Cartoonist and animator
- Tom Watson – MP
More information about each speaker can be found on the TEDxOrenda website.
As this event is taking place immediately after the BETT Show closes on the Wednesday evening, it is strongly suggested that you also register to attend the BETT Show as this will streamline your access to the event. Registration for the BETT Show is free and you can register here
Tickets will be released in several batches and are totally free. The first batch of tickets went very quickly last week. The next batch of tickets will be released on Sunday 19th December at 10am. You can get the tickets here: http://tedxorenda2011.eventbrite.com/
We’re hoping for another inspiring evening. See you there!
