TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
The event included performances from the Swati Youth Dance and the electrifying Mersybats- it was a huge success and an excellent day for all those involved! The fantastic team of organisers inlcude PhD students Sophie Owen, Katerina Cheliotis and Rachel Byrne.
