If you would like to speak at TEDxHastingsSt, please click https://forms.gle/BAxDWDq5TY5rPV2T7 and register your interest. We will be in touch soon after to let you know what we think. Even if we don’t use your idea immediately, we may want to invite you to register for another event where your idea may be more appropriate.
We are always looking for people interested in sharing their ideas. What kind of ideas? Ideas worth spreading, of course. What does that mean? Usually, we want ideas that are unique, innovative, or novel. Sometimes, we focus more on how the speaker could present a common idea in a fresh, unique way. We’re looking especially for ideas that can be backed up with quantitative research, but we are often interested in ideas that cannot be quantified if they are interesting enough.
TEDxHastingsSt 2019 happened on 10 August successfully with 6 speakers and one dance company,
We are now looking for speakers for 2020.

What is TED & TEDx?
TED is an annual event that brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that matter in any discipline – technology, entertainment, design, science, business, development, etc. The talks at the conference, called TED Talks, are then made available to watch for free on the TED website, https://www.ted.com/.
In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading” TED has created TEDx, a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience for local communities. At a TEDx event, live speakers spark deep discussion and connections within the local community.

On 7 July 2018, 125 people gathered at MTG Hawkes Bay to listen to 8 Speakers talk on Culture:-organizational culture, personal culture, national culture, Maori culture.
I loved it! Well run, great speakers and right here in Hawke’s Bay. Felt inspired and fulfilled when I left. I especially liked how the speakers hung around in the foyer so we got to mingle and talk to them casually
The chance to meet and hear challenging presentations by excellent speakers and then to discuss and meet with local people who are concerned is a movement which meets the needs of our time.
Inspirational speakers Good location Great food selection Appreciated and valued the Powhiri process
Challenging, intriguing, stimulating, emotional, fascinating, informative, vivid
Well organised. Good variety of speakers.
It was so inspiring! And since it is quite a small venue it was very a personal, relaxed atmosphere. Lots of questions going back and forth between speakers and audience. Big plus: speakers based or grown up in Hawke’s Bay.
It was an amazing experience, and one that people should not miss out on.
We enjoyed the day very much. Met some very interesting people and heard from some most interesting speakers.
Great selection of speakers and a current topic of “culture” was perfect.
It was a well organised event with a wide range of speakers dealing with relevant topics and good business ideals.
At the TEDxHastingsSt 2019 event on 10 August, we addressed assumptions. One definition for assumption: a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof. We all have assumptions about the world and about ourselves. They help us make sense of the world, and they help us make decisions and drive … Continue reading Answers from attendees for questioning assumptions
