Speaker update

Unfortunately, Jack Monroe has had to step back from speaking at TEDxExeter 2015. Instead, we’re delighted to announce new speakers Carmel McConnell and Beth Barnes.

Carmel is the founder of Magic Breakfast, a charity which delivers free, nutritious breakfasts to schools where over 35% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. They already support more than 400 schools, so that instead of arriving too hungry to learn, children can eat a healthy breakfast that helps with concentration, behaviour, attendance and attainment.

Beth is a student at Exeter College. She won a competition we jointly organised to give the students an opportunity to present an idea they feel passionately about at TEDxExeter. Many congratulations Beth!
