Second edition of TEDx GolfLinksPark is being hosted on the 23rd of March 2013 at Embassy Golf Links Park. This event plans to bring together best of the minds who use Internet, Design, and Computing as their playground. This will be attended by over 100 folks (both tech and non-tech). We have thought leaders and speakers who will share their stories from different disciplines (tech, social, arts/design, entertainment) and the focus is on featuring individuals working in the crossroads of cutting edge technology and making a social impact.

Crossroads mean that there are paths to be chosen. Paths trodden before. Some prefer the crazy adventure of the unbeaten track and some decide to make their own, questioning the existing ones. All paths hold the promise of possibility. Here's a bunch of individuals who have made a positive impact to lives of many through their incredible journeys. Let's listen to their life stories, and open our minds to the possibilities; unlock a thousand thoughts at once or a single great one.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.

TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
