TEDxNelson is proud to bring to you a range of local diverse speakers and ideas around the theme of Connection. The day will feature 13-15 speakers such as Lyndon Bray, Lisa Lawrence, and Nate Wilbourne, with more to be announced.  

TEDxNelson is part of an international community that celebrates locally-driven ideas and elevates them to a global stage. The aim is to showcase some of the incredible things happening in the region and unearth local voices. They intend to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder; to provoke conversations that matter, and create a legacy that we can be proud of. Organisers are looking forward to hosting a memorable day of big ideas and rich storytelling.

This is entirely a volunteer endeavor with not-for-profit status and is rooted in a desire to contribute to the greater good of Nelson/Tasman. By showcasing some of the region's brightest thinkers and doers, we can position ourselves as a region rich in innovative thinking with plenty of ‘ideas worth spreading'.

Organisers have had some incredible support from our local business community for the event and are appreciative of signed-up sponsors and partners; without them, this event wouldn't happen.

We believe our speakers deserve their ideas deserved to be shared with the global audience, using high quality production. Revenue from Sponsorship and Ticketing will be spent on the set-up, stage dressing, and the equipment required to record each of our talks.

To keep the event affordable, you may either bring your own lunch or pre-order catering ($35 pp) offered by Nourish Catering. We'll touch base with you about that, after registering.

Finally, after a big day of inspiring talks and deep connection, you are invited to the After Party at The Free House (4.30 - 5.30pm, nibbles & first drink free).
