A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and performances are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis to share inspirational ideas and thoughts.
In 2020, MDI Gurgaon saw the inception of TEDxMDIGurgaon and witnessed the first ever TEDx event. TEDx is an initiative, created in the spirit of TED's overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.”
After going through a tough year in a world that is under constant flux, we thought that our first ever talk should capture the essence of ‘change’ and the significance of original thinking in this change. The vision of our college- ‘Thought Leaders and Change Masters’ perfectly resonated with our desired objective. And thus, the first ever TEDx talk of MDI Gurgaon took the theme- ‘Thought Leaders and Change Masters’.
And to portray our theme, we chose our speakers from domains as diverse as Politics, Sports, Pageantry, Environmental Activism, Business, etc. The event took place on 28th February 2021 in a virtual platform and saw participation from world-renowned speakers like- Nitin Jairam Gadkari, Dr. Arockiaswamy Velumani, Major Deep Sengar, Praful Billore, Shaine Soni, Grandmaster Akshar, Mira Erda and Licypriya Kangujam. Their ideas and world views inspired and intrigued our audiences and encouraged them to open their minds and walk out of the event appreciating the world around them like never before.
Although the themes would change every year and so would the speakers, but the idea of the TEDx event to provide voice to the deserving and inspiring community will never change. Hence, it is an onus on the TEDxMDIGurgaon committee to live by this promise and give the community the gift of IDEAS.
