TEDxYouth@Chennai in Media

sandeep   November 18th, 2010

NXg of The Hindu, dated Nov 18 hit the stands with an article on TEDxYouth@Chennai, written by Yashasvini Rajeshwar, one of the key organisers for the event.

What do Tim Berners-Lee, Harsha Bhogle, Bono, Melinda French Gates, Gordon Brown and James Cameron have in common? They do not share a common nationality, they do not share a profession and they do not come from similar backgrounds either. Yet, there is a common binding thread about them. They have all, been speakers at a TED/TEDx event. (We will come to the difference soon).

Here is the link to the complete article

Experience with TEDxYouth

sandeep   November 10th, 2010

It isn’t everyday that the opportunity to help organize a TEDx event comes knocking on someone’s door, let alone a schoolgirl’s. So it should come as no surprise when I say that I grabbed it with both hands. The journey has been a memorable one to say the least, filled with frequent meetings, brainstorming, new contacts, and more than our fair share of fun. What the world will see on
November 20th, 2010 will only be the finished product – the result of hours of work, numerous phone calls and many frayed brain cells. But the behind-the-scenes story is one of great activity and many lessons learnt as well – how to put together an event of this scale, bring in sponsors and speakers, work effectively as a team… The famous proverb goes ‘Rome wasn’t build in a day’. Neither was TEDxYouth@Chennai but every step of the way has been an exhilarating experience.
