Founded in 2015, TEDxWHU aims to provide a platform for today’s most revolutionary, inspiring and creative thinkers. It is designed to stimulate dialogues through a TED-like experience. TEDxWHU is an immersive, day-long conference with numerous speakers. The conference offers great networking opportunities in-between speeches as well as a Meet & Eat during which participants can interact directly with the speakers.
Our first TEDxWHU event with the topic “New Horizons and Pioneers” took place in September 2015 bringing together a diverse audience and six speeches of thought leaders in their fields such as the CEO of Mazor Robotics Ori Hadomi, British Philosopher David Pearce and former “Germany’s Next Topmodel” winner Sara Nuru.

More About TEDx Events
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxWHU, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED conference provides general guidance for TEDx events, but the event is organized by the TEDxWHU initiative solely.
