What is a TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPointUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPointUniversity event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Why This Theme?

The theme of this year’s conference is “Unboxed”, and through this theme, we hope to capture ideas that may live outside what is accepted as normal.

It’s ideas that live outside the norm that often grow and better our societies. When we give the space to think differently, we become more empathetic, compassionate, and aware of the world around us.

At Point University, we want to seek new and creative solutions to the issues that face us every day. By allowing ourselves to think differently, we become better community leaders, team members, and humans.

We hope that by being a part of TEDxPointUniversity, you will experience these “outside the box” ideas in hopes that they will benefit you and the organizations you serve! TED is built on the ethos of “ideas worth sharing,” and we believe these ideas involve asking the question: how can I think outside the box?
