Curating TEDxFolkestone

In 2017 I founded my TEDx event – TEDxFolkestone – with the aim of providing a platform through  which people could find and express their big idea.

As an initially small team our aim was to create an open minded and supportive space for inspiration, learning and discover – but not just for the speakers and event attendees, but also for team members and the community at large. 

Multiple successful TEDx events later and our speakers’ TEDx talk videos have gained 2million+ views, and our events have gained a 9.7/10 average score in independent audience surveys.  You can view all the TEDxFolkestone talks HERE

Our collaborations with business, community, and education have seen the impact and benefit of our events stretch far beyond the numbers, but by far my most proud achievement through TEDxFolkestone has been the learning and growth of our team over the years.

As the event curator I get the privilege of hosting the TEDxFolkestone event.  Please see below for my introduction to our 2018 TEDx event which was themed ‘The Courage to Step Beyond’.
