We’re delighted to be building on the successes of the past few years and bringing our biggest and best event to date to you in 2017. Join us for our fifth flagship event on Friday 2nd June 2017, where we hope to welcome over 1,800 individuals to the incredible SEC Armadillo (formerly named the Clyde Auditorium) in Glasgow to explore this year’s theme ‘Lead or Follow’.

Our Theme: Lead or Follow

A nation renowned for our innovators, a powerhouse of a city, we’ve been a leading light in many industries across the globe. But when should we lead and when should we follow? Can we lead better by knowing when to follow? In an ever-evolving society, shaped by cultural and technological shifts, followers are gaining power akin to many traditional leaders.

We invite you to join us at TEDxGlasgow 2017 to uncover the best and brightest ideas around both leading and following. Be part of an inspirational day, attended and watched by curious individuals from across the globe. Lead or follow? You decide.

TEDxGlasgow is a not for profit initiative; all the income from tickets goes towards the cost of putting on the event and running the organisation.

Please note that there are limited tickets available and the past few years we have sold out prior to the event. If you can’t be there in person, we’d love for you to get involved in the conversations online and you can watch all our talks after the event online – get engaged, enjoy and get motivated!

    The TEDx movement goes beyond just one sector, idea or city. It expands across boundaries to reach millions of people worldwide and stimulate positive change.

We’re still firming up our lineup, but we’ve already had some spectacular applications and expect another fascinating and widespread range of Speakers to grace our stage for 2017.
