about us

We are TEDxJohannesburg. We are a community of curious, open-minded people who care deeply about celebrating local ideas, and sharing them with the world. Everyday we look for (and find) remarkable people doing great work. We give them a platform, and amplify their ideas on the world wide web. We believe that their ideas, delivered at our sought-after events, and distributed via video on the web, will change the world.

TEDxJOHANNESBURG BY THE NUMBERS

meet our team

TEDxJohannesburg events are organised by a dedicated team of highly skilled volunteers. Most are professionals, others are students, and a few represent their companies. They do this work not for political reasons, monetary reward or personal gain. They do it because they truly believe in the power of ideas to change the world.

The world, when seen through Thati's eyes, is one exhilarating piece of design. And there's no problem so complex that a good dose of design thinking cannot solve.

On Friday 20 April, at The Equinox, in Sandton, we bring you our favourite highlights from TED2018: The Age of Amazement.

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission; Ideas Worth Spreading. The program is designed to give communities the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDxJohannesburg, as it were, is a series of go-to events for curious, open-minded thinkers and doers in the Johannesburg area who care deeply about finding and celebrating local ideas, across disciplines, and sharing them with the world.
