About TEDxOnBoard

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDxOnBoard brings people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxOnBoard, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxOnBoard event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection with leading thinkers, doers and social change agents.

We will be celebrating together with creativity and innovations in Health, Biotech, Technology, Entertainment, Cultural Immersion, Travel and Wellness.

We are building a TEDxOnBoard Community to share innovations, share ideas, connect and network. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Join us on TEDxOnBoard to explore realities of tomorrow.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives.

At a TED conference, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. TED speakers have included Roger Ebert, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Brian Greene, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Three major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Vancouver, Canada, simultaneous with TEDActive, in Whistler, BC; and the TEDGlobal Conference will take place on the beach of Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro in October 2014.
