Dare To Disrupt

TEDxBristol 2017: Dare to Disrupt is all about the people doing things differently in order to make a BIG difference.

In a world of constant change, uncertainty and challenge – these are the Positive Disruptors: challenging the status quo, reimagining what is possible, redefining the future. Bold, brave and unflinching in their mission to turn received ‘wisdom’ on it’s head and transform pipe dreams into reality. Be prepared to rip up the rule book and start again. Open your mind, hold onto your seat and enjoy the ride. We’re going to #DareToDisrupt!

You can choose a two-day ticket, or attend for one day of your choice. As well as watching the TEDx talks being recorded live, you’ll get access to bespoke workshops, entertainment, spaces for quiet reflection, and places to meet people and share your ideas and passion projects. This is your ticket to two days of ‘Bristol’s best’: amazing stories, inspirational speakers and a chance to meet and connect with friendly & dynamic people.

Currently only Earlybird tickets are available – which is the two-day ticket option at a discounted rate. Earlybird tickets cost £75 plus booking fees and are available via the TEDxBristol website.

Dare To Disrupt

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas in the form of short, powerful talks, which have been watched over a billion times across the globe. TED believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. Independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world – and this is Bristol’s TEDx event.

Now in it’s 5th year, TEDxBristol has grown to become one of the biggest TEDx events in Europe. TEDxBristol returns to Colston Hall in 2017 for a two day event, having been granted a special licence from TED.com. Delegates from across the country attend TEDxBristol to source new ideas, make connections and experience the infectious optimism of our speakers and workshops.

In 2015 TEDxBristol played to a sell-out audience at Colston Hall, trended 7th in the UK on Twitter and reached 2.7 million people online. Join us to be part of the conversation, to spread ideas worth spreading, and make your contribution to the biggest ideas bank in the world!

The speaker line-up will be announced over the summer with the full line-up in place in September 2017. Please visit tedxbristol.com and follow @TEDxBristol on Twitter for the latest speaker announcements.
