Nobel prize winner to speak at sell out TEDx event

Feel like being inspired? An audience of 400 will have their horizons broadened at a TEDx event organised by UoN’s very own TEDx society on Sunday 6 April 2014.

Their biggest event yet is hosting 12 speeches (just 12 minutes each) and 3 performances. Among the speakers are Nobel Prize winner, Sir Peter Mansfield, who co-invented the MRI scanner, award-winning Iranian filmmaker Taghi Amirani, spoken word artist Raphael Blake and the list goes on.

Organiser Iain Botterill, a third year theology student, said: “TEDx is a grassroots not for profit organisation dedicated to ideas worth spreading. This  TEDx event is a mix of short speeches by international and local innovators and interesting minds of all sorts, who will spend the day sharing their ideas with you.”

This festival of minds and ideas will take place in The Business School South Building on Jubilee Campus.

And for a flavour of what is in store here are some pictures from previous events.
