About TEDx

On Friday 2nd June 2017, we will welcome thought-provoking, inspirational speakers, thinkers and doers to our fifth annual event, where we will explore the theme ‘Lead or Follow‘ at The SEC Armadillo in Glasgow.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGlasgow, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxGlasgow events, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.

Glasgow is a city of contrasts, from dire mortality rates to a recognised future city. So what better city to use the TEDx platform to bring Scotland together.
