Hyderabad, 20th August 2018: TEDx Hyderabad is to host the fourth edition of the TEDx Hyderabad 2018 event at JRC Conventions & Trade Fairs, Hyderabad on 16th September 2018 amid exceptional ReThink’ers. The theme for the full day event this year is ‘ReThink’.
One of the most prestigious events to be held in the city, it will feature 14 exemplary speakers from diverse backgrounds like sports, governance, design, education, gender equality, motivation, who are ReThink’ers and will convince the 2500+ participants about the power of ‘RETHINKING’. The speakers among others will include Anshul Sinha, Colleen Lightbody, Sanjay Thumma, S K Joshi, Gen V K Singh (Retd) and Vijay Chadda. These ReThink’ers emerged when they questioned the status quo, to drive results beyond simple possibilities. Their ReThinking gave way to a whole new perspective – whether it was the validation of an original idea, or a more holistic look at it, or a complete pivot from the original direction. ReThinking made the idea more powerful and doable, and made the ReThink’ers the leaders of the future.
Each talk will be curated to 18 minutes or less, bringing out the best takeaway for the 2500+ curated attendees. Local and global performers will regale the audience with powerful performances. To create exclusive experiences, an ‘Experience Zone’ at the venue will showcase different new technologies, innovation and work on sustainability. And there will be ample opportunities to network with like-minded Rethink’ers.
According to Viiveck Verma, Curator of TEDx Hyderabad, “We are trying to build the intellectual stimulation that the city requires through this event and its power of ideas. The response from the audience here has been phenomenal. From just 500 attendees in 2015, the number jumped to 2,000 in 2017 and is expected to grow at the same pace this year as well. We also see a lot of corporate interest and participation at our events.”
Says Dr. Anthony Vipin Das, co-organizer of the event, “TEDx Hyderabad is not about organizing yet another TEDx event. We have been trying to build a community of Thinkers, Enablers and Doers within Hyderabad. TedX Hyderabad 2018 promises to be a full day of 14 brilliant speakers, mind-blowing conversations, thought provoking videos & fabulous networking opportunities.”
