An acronym that represents today’s most common developments in three simple words.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. [We] cover almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.”

The Vienna based TEDx event (aka TEDxVienna) commenced this month’s May conference under the motto change worth fighting for.
In partnership with the capital’s annual Life Ball TEDxAmRing focused its talks on a topic that should be spoken off more than just once a year; the dangers and also beauty of HIV/AIDS.

Amongst fashion icon and political activist Vivienne Westwood speakers such as journalist Regan Hofmann and former CEO of MTV Networks Bill Roedy were invited to talk about their in-take on the disease and how they strive to raise awareness.
I was fortunate enough to work with Vienna’s TED volunteers and to actively experience the necessary preparations that are required for such an event to take place.



TEDxVienna’s hard work and team effort, or teffort (I have added that word to my vocabulary Issa Rae), is clearly mirrored on stage, when the speakers begin their presentation and grasp the audience’s undivided attention.





All that’s left to ask is, when’s the next conference? Because I can’t wait!
