What is a TEDx Event and TED Talk?
First off, TED is a nonprofit organization whose motto is:
Ideas worth spreading
On their website you can watch TED talks from around the world. A TEDx event is community event where TED-like lectures and performances happen. TEDx is an event that you can host anywhere. It then gets broadcast to an international community, showcasing local passions on a global stage.
TEDx events are independent of TED conferences. The event’s itinerary is set on its own following TED’s rules and format. TED talks are short and to the point, usually 5-18 minutes. Every word counts.
