TEDxFROME presents Aspire to inspire

28th Jan 2017 @ 10:00 - 17:00


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Our event is called TEDxFrome, where x = independently organized TED event. TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
