With the TBEX in the news this weekend down in Spain, I thought i would give you some of my favourite travel talks from TEDx
which describes itself as…… In the spirit of “Ideas worth spreading”, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
