Scaling for our fifth event in the capital…
…and reaching 1,000 attendees / 5,000 watching online.
Again, as licensee, producer and speaker coach, the step up this year was a validation of the effort that goes into the last 5 years of building the TEDx community in the capital. It was another sold out affair.
This year we tried some new things in terms of theme announcement (see first video above), registration tiers (see below), even having a ‘theatre screensaver’ (second video above), although at it’s heart, TEDxWellington is all about celebrating local ideas worth spreading and accelerating them through the TEDx platform.
There was also the honour to be named as one of the finalists for the 2017 Wellington Airport Community Awards in the Arts & Culture category. A recognition of all the volunteering effort the team puts into this event (as none of get paid for doing this).
