Technology, Entertainment and Design… and a lot more. With a stellar nucleus of talented artists, proven performers and successful entrepreneurs, TEDxBITSGoa promises to be a humdinger of an event.
TED is a U.S. private nonprofit foundation best known for its conferences, devoted to what it calls “Ideas Worth Spreading”. Established for sharing innovative ideas and path breaking technologies, TED has become a phenomenon, with the likes of Al Gore and Richard Dawkins in its ranks. Nothing comes even remotely close to the exposure, insight, brainstorming and the stunning opus of ingenious creativity during the TED sessions.
EncompassingÂ a diaspora of speakers ranging from top-notch technocrats to the innovation evangelists to maverick CEO’s, TEDxBITSGoa was without doubt the poster event of Quark 2010. From Himanshu Parekh’s eye opener on the powers of slum-networking to the prodigal Benett Orlando baffling the sea of audience with his magnum opus on the Rubik cube, from Arvind Gupta ,the man who revolutionized the idea of toys from trash to a candid Prahlad Kakkar on life in the corporate world and beyond, the speakers were absolutely enthralling. With a stunning opus of ingenious creativity and brainstorming, TEDxBITSGoa proved to be a humdinger of an event. And this year it only gets better.
TEDx is a program that enables schools, businesses, libraries etc. to enjoy a TED-like experience with TEDx Events which they themselves organize, design and host. This year Quark sizzles as TEDxBITSGoa comes to our the campus, during Quark 2011. What makes it a must attend is the once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the talent and mettle of the speakers, who are talismans in their own field, speak within the time frame of 18 minutes. So come and learn the tricks of the trade and see what it takes to make it to the top in a parasitic world of cut throat competition where talent is a big boon but negligence is a bigger curse. Miss this at your own risk.
