About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talk videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

TED provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. However, all TEDx conferences are subject to certain rules and regulations as part of their licence agreement that must be adhered to.

So, why do we sponsor this event?

Because, The Glass Wipe Board Company shares TEDxFolkestone values, such as:

• Thinking BIG and outside the box

• Communication

• Sharing free ideas

To only name a few.
