TED is a non profit organisation whose slogan is “Ideas Worth Spreading”, bringing together people from Technology, Entertainment and Design. They have two annual conferences (the TED Conference and TEDGlobal) as well as the TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project, TED Conversations, TED Fellows, TEDx and the annual TED Prize.

Speakers for TED have included Stephen Hawking, Simon Sinek and Sheryl Sandberg; big hitters in the world of technology and science. Now, TED is coming to Oldham and Salford.

TEDxSalford, happening at The Lowry on 10th November, is the largest TEDx conference in the UK, with over 1600 attendees. Speakers include Thad Starner, technical lead at Google Glass, research psychologist Eleanor Longden and entrepreneur and Dragon’s Den star Rachel Elnaugh.

TedxOldham, 24th October at Oldham Library, features the founders of Manchester Digital Laboratory and other figures in the local tech scene.

I received an invite to the Oldham event, and the whole CandidSky team Twill be attending the Salford event. TED talks are always very enlightening and engaging, so we’re all looking forward to hearing what the speakers have to say.
