“‘Why Not Here?’ – A purposefully provocative question that seeks to inspire a new vision by challenging us to reconsider our surroundings. We want to provoke a shift in mindset that makes you think – why not in your home, in your street, in your workplaces? Why not Glasgow? Why not TEDxGlasgow? Why not here?”
People Made TEDxGlasgow
It was a bracing, brilliant, & revelatory time.
“People Make Glasgow” is the official slogan for the city. It is based on the idea (read: truth) that the best part of Glasgow, is the people who live there. And TEDxGlasgow is no exception.
The work of TEDxGlasgow went far beyond launching the conference & into the conversation about what it means to be a part of the community. Leadership team meetings were bristling with innovative problem solving, boundary-pushing, & a whole hearted love for what makes Glasgow great. I worked alongside some of Scotland’s finest to bring these things to life; curator & TEDx founder, Gurjit Singh Lalli, head of operations, Ian Delworth, head of partnerships, Pauline Houston, head of marketing Cat Leaver, & head of management, Joanne Lynn. They are phenomenally wonderful humans (who all have full-time, non-TEDx jobs, mind you) & you can find out more about them here.
