What attendees have said

These testimonials are from the anonymous surveys we sent out after each of our three events.

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.

Attendee, November 2018

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.

Great selection of speakers and a current topic of “culture” was perfect.

This was the first time I’ve attended a TEDx, do follow various you tube TEDx topics and found the event brilliantly organised and loved the format with plenty of time to network.

Great to support local people. Interesting & thought provoking. You only have to make that one connection/hear that one thing that resonates to make it worthwhile.

Attendee, August 2019

A precious opportunity for individuals in our local community to find their voice and present vital issues to a world audience.
