What is TED, TEDx, and TEDxStJohns?

TED: a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Beginning in 1984 as a conference in California, TED has grown to support world-changing ideas.

At TED, world-leading thinkers and doers are asked to speak on their experiences. Talks are then made available to all at TED.com.

TEDx: independently organized event

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 TEDxStJohns, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxStJohns 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.
