The infectiously inspiring TEDx has finally reached Botswana. With this motivational event finally coming to the city, people of all ages can finally see their icons in a different light.
TEDx is an independently organized TED event, where ideas a shared between well-known public figures to future public figures (the audience). TED (Which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to spreading ideas, inspiring multitudes in the process. Why, it was through Chimamanda Adichie-Ngozi talk at TEDxEuston that tied Beyonce’s single Flawless seamlessly.
Those in Botswana with an extra P700.00 in your pocket can be privy to the TEDx experience. Hosted in the capital city’s Gaborone International Convention Centre (GICC) this coming Saturday, the daylong event is set to bring speakers coming from different walks of life. With over 10 speakers in fields of sport such as the world’s middle-distance running, record breaking Nigel Amos, business, education, art and music including the Pioneer of ‘Motswako’ (a Southern African genre of hip hop music) Tebogo “Nomadic” Mapine, all these ideas will be in one house creating provocative thought under the notion of imagining a better world.
