One of my earlier posts was our first announcement for TEDxCalcutta. I absolutely enjoyed and loved being a part of the event. Besides the speakers, who were of-course amazing and absolutely fascinating one of the things that I also loved about TEDxCalcutta was the participants who attended the event. We had folks from all corners of the world and all walks of life doing amazing things which were not just innovative but hugely inspirational.
During the event I was able to connect to a few participants and get a conversation going about some of the genuinely inspirational and innovative work that they were involved with.
As we work on editing, publishing some of the speaker videos and deciding a schedule which will be used to upload the talks on the website, one of the additional things that we want to start as a parallel thread is listening to you.
If you are working on something that is ground breaking, genuinely innovative and at the same time is truly inspirational, if you have an idea that you believe is worth sharing and if you would like to share the idea with a community of really smart individuals, we would like to know more about the idea.
We would typically prefer this to be in the format of an un-edited video where we have a casual discussion with you about your idea or your work, preferably in your work place but if you are working out of places where we cannot get someone to interview you, we can also do it as recorded podcast, a recorded webcast or web meeting.
The email to send in your ideas or more details about the work that you are involved with is firstname.lastname@example.org. We will start looking at some of the emails that we receive and start prioritizing the order in which we cover these. We expect the first recorded cover to happen around mid April.
Its always a pleasure to come across smart people who inspire you and connect to them. This, is just one of our attempts at getting the discussion going around the year instead of just turning TEDxCalcutta into a once a year event.
Go ahead, send in your ideas.
We are waiting to hear from you.
