TEDxUniversity of Leeds Presents: Tomorrow is Today

It's official guys... we're back.

After numerous Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and blog posts promising exciting updates about an upcoming 2019 date, we are ecstatic to announce that we have finally confirmed a date

We have been working really hard as a committee, discussing ideas potential speakers, themes- you name it. All our efforts have finally come together, and the day has finally come.

We are beyond excited to announce that we have a date and event coming this academic year.

Keep reading for more information.

When we talking?

Take note now. 

The event will take place on Monday 6th May 2019 (May Bank Holiday). That's not all however, we have also secured a beautiful spot to host the event and this year's TEDxUniversity of Leeds event will take place in the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall here at the University of Leeds.

So, remember that although Bank Holiday weekends are all about fun, this bank holiday Monday can still be a productive and amazing experience for you to listen to some ideas worth sharing and network with some amazing individuals.

Potentially the most exciting element of this announcement is the theme that we've all spend months deciding on. 

"Tomorrow is Today" seeks to embark on the impact of our daily activities, thoughts and feelings and how they affect and are shaping tomorrow.

The event will be composed of various speakers from diverse backgrounds and disciplines that specialise in different areas of study and interest. We hope to make this event as accessible to everyone that just has an interest in TED events and ideas worth sharing. 

More information and update regarding the theme will be published on the blog soon.


This is where it gets even more fun.

Although we have been working really hard as a committee to brainstorm ideas and have some great potential speakers in the pipeline.... we want to hear your thoughts and ideas about potential, inspiring speakers. We want to know about potential speakers that YOU think are worthy of appearing on the main stage at the TEDxUniversityofLeeds 2019 event and have ideas worth sharing in relation to this year's theme.
