TEDxWellington has just announced 'trust' as the theme for this year's event. It will be "an experience that starts with anticipation as many of the event details will be kept a secret, including: location; speakers/performers; exact number of tickets; programme for the day and; breakout session details", their presser announced. This approach to the event is revolutionary, pushing the boundaries of the traditional TEDx format and promising a new and experimental method of imparting inspiration.

In preparation for what is looking to be yet another successful and inspiring event with all prior three events sold out, TEDxWellington is seeking speakers to share their stories, creativity, achievement, history and much more, as a means of sparking discussion and provoking thought. THe key goal for the 2015 event is "to craft deeper participation between the delegates and the ideas worth spreading from the speakers / performers during the day, and then beyond into the wider community of the Wellington region, New Zealand and the world".

TED is a non-profit organization devoted to 'Ideas Worth Spreading'. The initiative began 26 years ago with a four-day conference in California, dedicated to that very purpose. Since then, TED has grown to support world-changing ideas on a global scale, with the world's leading thinkers and doers asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. These are then made available, free, at TED.com in order to facilitate the spread of inspiration and thought across all facets of society. TEDx (x marks it as an independently organised TED event) is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

An unmissable opportunity to get your great idea on a world platform; launched by one of the world's greatest forum for inspiration.
