TEDxExeter 2016 – Dreams to Reality
Exeter’s leading ideas festival is back for the fifth year with an exceptional line up of speakers who are changing the world through their groundbreaking work and ideas. Their talks will inform, challenge, entertain and encourage the audience to connect with each other, reflect on the day and turn inspiration to action.
And because on 15 April 2016 we will be livestreaming in the Alumni Auditorium very near to the live event in Exeter Northcott Theatre, we will be offering twice as many tickets.

TEDxExeter 2015: Taking the Long View All talks »
Our fourth TEDxExeter conference took both the long view back into the past and the long view ahead into the future, and asked how they can reveal and help us to understand the challenges that face us now, and shape the way we live, make decisions, and innovate. TEDTalks video and live speakers combined to spark deep discussion and connection. Click on a photo to view the video, read the live blog of the event, and find out more about the speaker.
