TEDxBristol is supported by a diverse range of businesses and organisations from across the South West, all of whom are passionate about sharing great ideas and supporting Bristol's thriving creative and technology sector.

Headline Partners

Our Headline Partners are at the heart of TEDxBristol. They play a pivotal role in delivering the event, and work with the TEDxBristol team on a range of innovative and exciting collaborations, all year round.


Floating Harbour has been a long-term Media Partner with TEDxBristol and we are delighted to support the movement which has always offered us inspirational, informative and exciting experiences.

We support all of the TEDxBristol ‘pillars’ but are particularly engaged with developing ‘Fresh Talent’. Bath Spa students have taken on roles within our team to help film the event. Students are on cameras, in the edit and gain valuable industry experience. We need them too. TEDxBristol is a real job for volunteers and you have to get the job done with professionalism and limited resources. So the experience is an authentic one and the result is an incredible journey for everyone.

Floating Harbour is a production company awash with creativity, vast experience and all the latest toys. We are a small company with big ears, big experience, big ideas. Oh…and a studio and production offices on a very big boat in the heart of Bristol.

Gritty Pearl is delighted to be TEDxBristol's live production partner. Our key passion is seeking out rare stories and nurturing new, diverse talent in order to create inspirational events and innovative content. With TEDxBristol, we're championing Bristol's most exciting emerging entrepreneurs and influencers - on and off screen - in order to bring more diversity and originality to your screens. 

Our sister arm Gritty Talent connects diverse emerging creatives with decision makers in film, TV and digital platforms. The aim is to bridge the gap that currently exists in the UK media industry between people from under-represented backgrounds with huge potential, and the decision makers responsible for commissioning and producing content that represents the whole of society.


At Hodos Consultancy Co. we are very experienced in the fact that a well-told story sets culture, drives strategy, engages teams, compels listeners, evokes emotional response and transforms consumers into advocates. We help maximise the effectiveness of stories by enhancing the way they are told; for companies, private individuals, and 3rd sector organisations, through a combination of interactive workshops and personalised coaching.

Hearing the amazing things people are doing across Bristol, the South-west and the world is a genuine inspiration. The opportunity to help the amazing individuals who speak at TEDxBristol is a privilege. Seeing them develop their stories, from early ideas through to stepping on stage, is one of the highlights of our professional lives.

We are so proud to have been supporting TEDxBristol since 2015 and look forward to meeting the Fresh Talent who will be gracing the stage at TEDxBristol 2019 in November!

We’re extremely excited to partner with TEDxBristol again this year. Why? Because it’s a fantastic, forward-thinking organisation — and because our company shares the values that TEDxBristol represents through its three pillars: Community, Fresh Talent and Smart Planet.

Here at Newicon, we strongly believe in giving back to, and supporting, the tech community. That’s why we’ve recently worked with Bristol University and local schools to help young people develop the skills they need to work in the industry.

And that ties into our commitment to developing fresh talent. As well as sharing our knowledge and experience with the next generation of developers, digital marketers, and designers, we also encourage continued learning within our business. 

The idea of working towards a Smart Planet is particularly close to our heart. Using tech to create a better, smarter, more collaborative planet is at the core of everything our business stands for. Just look at our mantra: new tomorrow.

Newicon is a software, design and digital marketing company — helping businesses make the most of technology, the web and digital transformation. We built this web application for TEDxBristol using our new-fangled web application platform neon which we're still extremely excited about.

Opus Talent Solutions is an end-to-end talent consultancy and recruitment firm, which launched in 2008 in Bristol. We operate in the tech and energy market, with the mission to be a global leader in niche and innovative talent solutions in these fields and beyond. Just like the TEDx theme this year, we have had to reflect, rethink and reboot, and are helping our clients do the same.  

We are thrilled to be one of TEDxBristol official partners this year. As a boundary breaking talent consultancy working in rapidly evolving markets, we know first-hand the importance of reflecting, rethinking and rebooting in today’s ever-changing world.  

We are passionate about sharing ideas, promoting change, innovating and evolving. This is something we do in our own industry and fully align to TEDx’s mission to do the same in Bristol and beyond. We are beyond pleased to be partnering with an organisation who align to our mission and values.
