Speaker Workshops

Hi, my name is Dom and I’m part of the TEDxPlymouthUniversity team. As a final year student and young entrepreneur here at Plymouth, I spend the majority of my time juggling academics with business, while attempting to revive my social life! However, each morning I will always find the time to sit and watch a new TED talk; I believe TED has the ability to shape the way we think, feel and interact with others.

In this post, I wanted to share with you the highlights of last week’s speaker workshop, after recent completion of the written selection process. Our excitement in anticipation for the event has only grown after experiencing just a brief glimpse of our speakers’ individual personality, competence and passion surrounding their talks. I was overwhelmed by the friendly encouragement and constructive energy that filled the room, along with genuine interest and curiosity shared between speakers. Seeing the spirit of TEDx spread from the Plymouth University team to the speakers has only reinforced my love and enthusiasm for TED talks. I know the speakers are eager to share the spirit of TED talks with the audience on the 9th of March.

Our second workshop will commence this afternoon. We will keep you updated as the process continues…
