At TEDxExeter 2014 our speakers and performers connected us with other worlds. Our talks exposed corruption in big business, shared effective approaches to tackling social inequality and gave a voice to those whose human rights are under threat. We explored the impact of fast changing technologies on all our lives. We journeyed through fire and forest to frozen landscapes. We were challenged to consider worlds of extremes, cutting edge controversies and risky opportunities.
As with our previous two conferences there was music, an excellent locally sourced lunch and wonderful opportunities in the breaks to meet and mix with speakers, performers and fellow TEDx-ers, and continue the conversation.
It was a day not to be missed!
