TED Talk Speaker SPEAKERS

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design – three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping the future. Each year, the world’s top thinkers, leaders, innovators and instigators gather for a multi-day journey into the future, filled with the keynote speaking presentations of those creating it. The event, known as TED was first held in 1984. Decades later, this legacy of innovation and influence continues.

In addition, there are speaking events planned and coordinated independently around the globe on a community basis known as TEDx. TED’s tremendous success is based on the extraordinary effect of bringing together the world’s most remarkable speakers across many fields, resulting in unexpected connections, extraordinary insights and powerful inspiration.

We represent a number of prominent TED speakers who have frequented the stages at TED and TEDx events around the world, and are available to inform, incite and inspire at your next event.
