Over two days, 19th – 20th November 2015, TEDxJohannesburg brings you ideas worth sharing under the theme, Moonshots.

TEDxJohannebsurg 2015 Moonshots

“The theme for TEDxJohannesburg 2015 is Moonshots, which for us means the most monstrous, awe-inspiring dreams, hopes and goals that humanity sets for itself”

23 speakers will give the talk of their lives, literally in that they are sharing their lives’ Ā work and figuratively in the talks are impassionedĀ and life-changing.

On Thursday 19th November, 17 speakers will deliver their talks at the Soweto Theatre with a live simulcast at Turbine Hall in Newton, Ā andĀ on Friday 20th November, Ā 6 speakers will deliver their talks at Turbine Hall.

The speaker line up is diverse, withĀ people from various industries, interests and backgroundsĀ with the likes of:

It’s not just the speakers whose talks willĀ engage youĀ in ways you never thought possible, but also, the other delegates who come to the event. TEDx is an enriching experience all round.

I have had the privilege ofĀ being part of theĀ TEDxJohannesburg, TEDxSoweto and TEDxVanderbijlpark teams, and those moments of contact changed me in ways I did not expect. TEDx nourished my zeal for seeking out and embracing life-changing moments of truth; in whatever form or scale. Volunteering with them,Ā I engaged and intimated with someĀ of our generation’s foremost thinkers, creatives and change-makers.Ā One of the things that startled me the most aboutĀ this community in Johannesburg (TEDxSoweto and TEDxJohannesburg) wasĀ just how sincereĀ theĀ peopleĀ running the show are:Ā Kelo Kubu, aĀ matriarch with a benevolentĀ temperament and an assertive nature and Ithateng Mokgoro, wildly creative and unapologetically humane. It is no wonderĀ they make this event happen every year.
