TEDxUCCI: Spark was a great success!

Thank you so much for being a part of TEDxUCCI: Spark! Our third annual event saw over 75 participants coming together to hear from ten speakers, each one bringing a different element to the event. We scored high marks, with people saying they will attend future stagings and recommend TEDxUCCI to others!

A huge thanks to our speakers, attendees and volunteers for your enthusiasm and helping to make this a wonderful experience for everyone involved. So many individuals and organizations have rallied around our efforts to being a real TED-like experience to the Cayman Islands!

TEDxUCCI events provide a platform for getting Caymanian and Caribbean points of view exposure on a global stage. Most of the speakers at the TED Conference actually are drawn from the best presentations at TEDx events. Each of our talks is reviewed by the TED organization as a possible future presenter on the main stage at a future TED Conference. They are also archived in the TEDx YouTube channel for all the world to see.
We will be informing you once the talks become available online.

In the meantime, please take the time to view our event photos on Flickr.

Anyone interested in presenting a talk at a future TEDxUCCI event should send us an e-mail asking to be notified when the next application window becomes available. Please also check back for updates.

We look forward to having you at our next TEDxUCCI event!

Hosted by the University College of the Cayman Islands, our vision is to inspire people to step out of their comfort zones, think innovatively, and exchange ideas fearlessly.

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUCCI, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUCCI event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
