The Cross River State House of Assembly Speaker, Hon. John Gaul Lebo and nine others are set to speak at the TEDx Calabar event billed to hold Saturday 3rd December, 2016.
The event is said to be a full-day, high-octane, community-driven, independently-organized TED Talk holding at the conference hall of Calabar Women and Children Hospital, 164/165 Murtala Mohammed Highway, Calabar, by 9am prompt.
Tickets are available at www.tedxcalabar.org or CBN-EDC Calabar.
Other speakers include Audrey Joe-Ezeigbo, Rev. Nninmo Bassey, Gossy Ukwanwoke, Dennis Nkanga, Cathey Armillas, Musheer Alambath, Praise David-Oku, Nsikak Essien and Yvonne Ebi.
According to organizers, TEDxCalabar is a journey through a world of extraordinary ideas, born of, and driven by, curiosity; a ‘Talk Station’ for people who have ideas that solve specific, identifiable problems in the world; a platform that showcases people who do remarkable things, who create significant value, who do cutting-edge work across different causes, and who provide ingenious solutions to native and global challenges; a conference that reveals how the Calabar community is expanding perceptions, driving culture, tackling challenges, and creating new opportunities locally and globally.
One of their goals is to create an immersive environment where local organizations, thought leaders, key enablers from vastly different fields, and exceptional doers will cross-fertilize and draw inspiration from one another.
organizers say, they are building strategic partnerships that will promote, support, and fund these ideals.
“This foundation of speakers, organizers, partners, influencers, and sponsors form the basis of the community we are building in Calabar, and we invite you to become a part of it.
“TEDx is part of a revolution in global education made possible by local organizers wanting to engage with their communities. Every week, in cities around the world, people come together to pursue ideas worth spreading.”
TEDx is in more than 145 countries including Nigeria, and in more than 800 cities including Calabar.
There are more than 14,600 TEDx events, more than 30,000 TEDx videos, and an average of 8 TEDx events daily.
