Theme: Speaking the Unspoken

Date: 23rd February, 2013

Time: 10 AM to 6 PM

Venue: Indus Business Academy, Bangalore

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED like experience. TEDxIBABangalore was the first of its kind to be organized by Indus Business Academy. The event was organized on February 23, 2013 where eminent speakers around the world participated.

The theme for this event was ‘Speaking the unspoken’. It implies the sharing of things that are not spoken in the real world till now. It is best to share what one feels since it is seldom that they are revealed. Therefore this theme provokes the need in one’s life to cross the barriers & unleash a new set of thinking, so that it adds value to the lives that matter.

The speakers list was as follows:

  1. Harish Bijoor
  2. Peter Van Geit
  3. Sonia Mackwani
  4. Maya Sharma
  5. Gursimran Khamba
  6. Nikita Singh
  7. Jasleen Royal
  8. Poonam Bir Kasturi
  9. Navin Gulia
  10. Chef. Pankaj Bhadouria

The day witnessed the arrival of speakers & the subsequent tree plantation session by all the speakers.
