*NEW FOR 2022

We're really pleased to introduce TEDxAdventures to this year's series of events. These pre- and/or post-conference in-person tours and activities are designed to engage attendees and community members before and after our main events events. Adventures usually include hands-on, interactive experiences with local community interests, or speakers from past and future events. This develops a sense of excitement for the ideas that will be shared in your event before the big day.

This year we're introducing Speaker Dinners. They're an exclusive private dinner for all our speakers, core organisers and presentation partners before our main events. Its an opportunity to break bread and share a meal to build community among our current speaker cohorts. We hope they'll create incredible moments for the entire production. We plan speeches, words of encouragement and maybe even some exclusive swag too.

"Our organisation has made connections that will enhance our business offer through the various TEDx events we've attended, therefore I think more people should be involved in events such as this to reengineer the way business think."

The day provided an opportunity to learn and hear ideas from a range
of speakers on a number of fascinating subjects. TEDxBrayfordPool also provides the space to meet new people and develop new conversation. Excellent. Well organised and inspiring day can’t wait for next year’s event.
