Your plan for the day

A celebration of talent: Home & Away

In the summer of 2014 TEDx Liverpool delighted in bringing you a truly uplifting and inspiring day that was all things Liverpool. 'Home and Away' celebrated Liverpool talent, those who are local and those who have made it to lands far away. We hosted at the iconic Everyman for a day of refreshingly authentic speakers and heart trembling performances. Thank you for joining this engaging local community for a day of ideas worth spreading.

Curated by Herb Kim of Thinking Digital Ltd, co-curated by Dave Brown of Apposing Ltd and produced by Mari Burns, the 2014 line up includes speakers sourced locally, nationally and internationally who all have an affiliation with Liverpool. These speakers join our TEDx Liverpool speaker alumni along with Steve Clayton from Microsoft, Alex Dunsdon from M&C Saatchi Mobile, Ian Wharton of Zolmo, Mills from ustwo™, and Tom Scott of Sky 1 HD's 'Gadget Geeks'.

This independent TEDx event is operated under licence from TED.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

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 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Long Beach, California, along with the TEDActive simulcast in Palm Springs; the annual TEDGlobal conference is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, the recently launched TED-Ed platform for students and educators, the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide, and TEDBooks, short e-books by speakers that elaborate on a single idea originally presented on TED's stage. 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.
