Former TEDxPretoria Licensee
"TEDxPretoria was more than a project to me. It was almost like raising a child - we nurtured it from infancy, into the difficult toddler years, and finally saw it graduate to school and beyond. It made me realise the importance of collaboration and trust. It opened my eyes to the potential of people. I saw the brand walk, then crawl, then run - it wasn’t perfect, but we strived to continuously improve along every step of the way.
The TED brand and what it stands for resonates deeply with me. ‘Ideas worth spreading’ has become part of my daily life and the way I teach and share. I share TED talks regularly and will continue to do so.
Seven events and more than 80 wonderful speakers and performers later, I can say in my heart that South Africa has so much to offer. So many talented scientists, humanitarians, doctors, entrepreneurs and performers live amongst us. There is so much talent yet to be uncovered on African soil. We have incredible people with the most unique and sometimes out of this world ideas! I’ve met so many profound people on my journey and got to work with the MOST FANTASTIC team of volunteers, many who stuck with me for +5 years."
