Event Title


Ideas act like waves, sparking unexpected impacts. Whether it is a completely new perspective or just a story,
they all travel around and have unimaginable effects on humanity. Our event revolves around unconventional ideas and perspectives and
we invite you to expand your horizons!

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 TEDx SunwayUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSunwayUniversity 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.
