Flagship 2018 – Rose Theatre Kingston
TEDxKingstonUponThames 2018 – Out of Order
Saturday 20th January 2018 – 11am – 7pm
The only constant is change. It’s all around us. At home, at work. Online, offline. In our city streets, in our phones, in the way we view the world. It’s exciting, yet disconcerting.
This year, TEDxKingstonUponThames explores ‘Out of Order’ and the many different interpretations of that phrase; change, disruption, sub-cultures, a broken situation, radical solutions, a different way of looking at things…
From technology and design to adventure, culture and the way we live and work now and in the future, our speakers will delve into some of the most challenging questions of modern life.
Our full line-up of around 15 speakers will be updated here when available.
Changing the Shape of the Skies – Chris Daniels
Managers, Who Needs Them? – Jenny Andersson
How to Feed Nine Billion People – Richard Higgins
