FIVE YEARS OF IMPACT
Since inception, our goal has been to showcase ideas and amplify innovation from Lincolnshire on a global stage.
We've created an active community platform and grown our social and economic impact with each event. Our continued success is only possible thanks to our dedicated community of volunteers, speakers, partners, and participants, who share our ambition to create a more innovative and progressive Lincolnshire.
Since launching in 2017 we've explored ideas from equal rights, mental health, climate crisis, robotics, sleep and much more. We've brought together diverse groups of people to mobilise social change and we've created a clear financial impact within our city.
Much of our work contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals for quality education, decent work and economic growth, reduced inequalities, sustainable cities and communities and climate change.
2022 Series Impact
2022 saw our return to in-person events post-pandemic. In addition to our flagship TEDxBrayford Pool and TEDxBrayford Pool Youth events, we reformatted our TEDxBrayford Pool Salon events and launched a series of TEDxAdventure activities focused on turning ideas into action.
2022 also saw the loss of one of Grim Beepers due to complications from COVID-19 and winter flu. We dedicate our impact this year to the legend that was Dex Wright.

To mark our fifth anniversary we're catching up with some of our alumni throughout the year to find out what happened after their talks...
In 2018 we became the fastest-growing TEDx series in the UK and we've used that momentum to drive progress within our city and shine a global spotlight on the place we call home. We're proud to be one of the leading TEDx series in the East Midlands helping support others to create a regional legacy of ideas worth spreading.
