One month to go! The team is getting very excited, and we hope you are too. TEDxExeter wouldn’t happen without our sponsors, so here’s a brief introduction.
The sponsors come from a wide range of business sectors. Egremont is a management consultancy interested in thought leadership. Sungift Solar are award-winning experts in the design and installation of renewable energy systems for commercial and domestic customers. And the University of Exeter is a top 10 UK university which combines world leading research with high levels of student satisfaction. We’re also very happy to welcome as a sponsor the University’s Business School, which runs a highly-regarded MBA course and the internationally-renowned One Planet MBA.
Browne Jacobson are a national law firm offering specialisms across the commercial, public, health and insurance sectors, with an interest in sustainability. Paul Humphries Architects are a well-established practice, based in Exmouth, with a track record in contemporary sustainable design. Wilkinson Grant & Co are an award-winning estate agency based in the South West, and have been supporting local initiatives for many years.
A number of organisations have provided in-kind support. TEDxExeter is being hosted by the Exeter Northcott Theatre, which plays a vital role in the artistic life of Exeter and the heart of Devon. The Magdalen Chapter, a contemporary hotel within the historic walls of the former West of England Eye Hospital, is providing accommodation for our speakers. Colourburn is supporting the filming of the talks, as they did in 2012. The agency also provides services in branding, events, installations, PR and social media. Benjamin J Borley is providing the photography. He is based in the south west, but his photography and films are exhibited world-wide. Luscombe Drinks have been making beautiful drinks since 1975, and are providing the refreshments in the afternoon. And finally, Websites Ahoy! provides websites for small businesses and community groups, and designed, developed and is continuing to maintain this website.
But that’s not quite the end of it. We’re also really grateful for the support of our Friends.
TEDxExeter is a not-for-profit initiative. All speakers and entertainers take part on a no-fee basis and the TEDxExeter team give their time voluntarily. We very much want to make TEDxExeter accessible to a wide cross section of our community. We couldn’t do this without you all!
