Watch the live stream of TEDxManchester2

Occupy Everything

As previously mentioned… I’m thrilled to be talking at TedXManchester after masterminding the very first one in BBC Manchester over 2 years ago. Unfortunately the event sold out months ago and the idea of opening up more space so people could watch, wasn’t possible.

However, I’m happy to say there will be a live web stream on the day and you can watch it from the comfort of your own machine.

Hello Manchester TEDsters,
We’re happy to announce the detais of the webcast for TEDxManchester. The webcast starts at 1pm this Monday, 13 Feb.
You will find it at..
Our event hash tag is #TEDxMCR for all your social chatter.

What exactly I’ll be talking about is still a secret but if you look at the last two times I’ve spoken this month it might help.

  1. ????
  2. Perceptive Media
  3. Who pays on the first date?
I can tell you its going to be highly personal and I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this one. You won’t want to miss it as its going to have people talking for a long time afterwards hopefully. The slide above is from the presentation by the way…

I’m presenting in the 2nd half of TedXManchester after 1530 with,

  • David Erasmus
  • Tara Shears
  • Brendan Dawes

While at 1300,

  • Mary Anne-Hobbs
  • Tom Bloxham
  • Dan O’Hara
  • Someone still to be confirmed (wondering if they can beat the Astronaut at TedxSalford)
