Kia ora! Welcome to TEDxHastingsSt
Back for its third year, the annual Hawke’s Bay TEDx Event, TEDxHastingsSt, was held in Havelock North after successful events in both Napier and Hastings. The 2020 event was held in the Blyth Theatre at Iona College, Havelock North on Saturday 12th September.
At TEDxHastingsSt 2020, 7 live speakers combined to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group on a wide range of topics from Free Energy to Personal Development. The speakers this year included: Amanda Palmer, Andrew Harris, Bhavna Nagar, Clive Barrow, Jules Congalton, Christine Spring, and Wayne Forrest.
The 2018 event focused on visions for a more culturally vibrant Hawke’s Bay. Last year’s theme looked more practically at how to achieve that inspiring vision. And this year, TEDxHastingsSt began to apply that vision.
After a year full of uncertainty, TEDxHastingsSt 2020’s theme of Celebrate the Journey encouraged us all to renew our long-term vision as we look to the future. It is easy to celebrate the beginning or end of something, but celebrating the journey itself is often forgotten.
The event this year will took place over a Saturday afternoon, where attendees were challenged and inspired in an amazing venue. The ticket price included light refreshments provided by local food and beverage suppliers. The event concluded with a wine and cheese soiree where there was an opportunity to network with other attendees and the speakers.
The 2020 event was again organised by the devoted volunteer team at TEDxHastingsSt with support from their sponsors and key partners.
