TEDxBristol 'Great Expectations' - 11th November 2015

On 11 November TEDxBristol 2015 played to a sell-out audience at Colston Hall, trended 7th in the UK on Twitter and reached 2.7 million people online. Thank you to those who joined us for a thought-provoking and fun-filled day.

The mission was to explore our Great Expectations for the future, and to showcase the relentless optimism and can-do approach so native to Bristol. From all walks of life our speakers told inspirational stories of unwavering determination, mind-blowing innovation and great personal challenges.

Our talks will be online very shortly, please sign up to our newsletter, download our app or follow us on Twitter to get the latest updates. We'd also love it if you could share with us your photos, videos and memories of the day . You can see our photos from the day here on Flickr.

What is 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 TEDxBristol, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBristol event, TEDTalks 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.
