What is a TEDx talk?

TED talks are short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less) and began at a conference in 1984 where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged. Today, TED and TEDx talks cover almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Independently run TEDx events such as TEDxLukelyBrook help to share ideas in communities around the world. Our speakers bring ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’ to our venue, watch party and online through the live stream, plus as TEDx Talk videos on the TEDx YouTube Channel with over 32 million subscribers.
