About TEDx, x=independently organize 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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

I was grateful to be given a chance to help in this event. Starting from setting the stage, decoration and twitting during the events. This event has inspired me to do more and dream big, inline with a quote from the talks;

"We shouldn't try to motivate people, but inspire them.
Because inspiration is irreversible.

Special thanks for Carl Mezcla, Alex Lindqvist, David Relan, Sami Rabey and other people that i have met in these joyful event.
