What is TED?
Started 30 years ago in the spirit of “Ideas Worth Spreading” TED has grown to host 2 annual global conferences where the World’s leading Thinkers and Doers give short format talks--less than 18 minutes or less--on a diversity of topics from how to live on mars, to human beat boxing, to the beauty of human skin in every color, to how great leaders inspire change. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Long Beach, California, along with the TED Active simulcast in Palm Springs; the annual TED Global conference is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
What is TEDx?
TEDx is an independently, locally organized event that brings people together for a TED-like experience. At TEDx, live speakers and pre-recorded TED Talks combine to spark audience discussion and connection.
Why under 18 minutes?
This short talk model works, since it only demands the audience's attention for a short period of time, decreasing the chance of minds wandering or daydreaming about lunch. In fact, some of our greatest TED Talks have been as short as 5 minutes long!

Does it happen to have a panel with only renowned top-shot names?
Certainly, not! By our theme ‘Celebrating You’, we want to bring out unheard stories. Our team is dedicated towards finding out speakers with stories worth listening to and getting inspired with, from people who not necessarily make the headlines on our favourite news channels or from radio jockeys across the nation.
How many people will be in the audience?
The audience will have 400+ participants.
What is the difference between an idea and productive idea worth talking about as a Speaker at TEDXTughlagRd?
It can actually be one of two things:
  • Innovation, showcasing a surprising innovative approach unheard of.
  • Basic implementation that has the potential to make a better impact than the formerly used alternatives.
In other words, an idea isn’t just a story or a list of facts. A good productive idea is built over evidence, team efficiency and iterative approaches of lean product development.
Can I apply / or nominate someone for being a Speaker at TEDxTughlagRd?
Alas, we are almost full with speaker slots, but we are interested if you have a great story to share, perhaps some stories need time squeezed out or can make a way for our next TEDx. We would like to hear from you if there is anything you believe the country needs to listen, contact us as soon as possible.
I would like to know about the curator of the event.
