TEDxNTU -The Pursuit of Happiness.

on March 2, 2012

It’s that time of the year again. It’s time for TEDxNTU!!

Honestly, joining TEDxNTU has been one of the best things I have done in NTU. For one: I joined the designing and marketing of TEDxNTU and well that was a wonderful break from engineering. Ok, it’s not that I don’t like engineering. It’s just that I have missed drawing and sketching and creating art for a long time and this was the best way to get back all of that in the time crunched life of an University student. Two: It was good motivation to brush up and learn more about Photoshop. Three: Hosting TEDxNTU means being as closely related to TED as is possible while staying here in Singapore. That is super exciting! It means being in touch with the latest news, ideas, thoughts, technology and innovations from TED. Five: It means getting to meet amazing and unique people in and around Singapore – all those brilliant speakers we invite for TEDxNTU.

The first year, TEDxNTU focused on “Where dreams, ideas and ambitions are powered”. The event was held at the architecturally ADM Auditorium and graced 13 speakers. This was followed by the next event held at Marina Bay Sands with the theme “Ideas lead the way” and fully supported by Ideas.inc.

This year, TEDxNTU is back to its old home – the NTU Campus. The event is to be held on 17th March 2012 at the Lee Kong Chian Lecture Theater, South Spine. The event talks about “The Pursuit of Happiness” and aims to throw light on the elusive and fuzzy mind state we call happiness.

The event has limited entries (like anything good) and registration closes on 5th March. Interested? The link is http://www.tedxntu.com/register.

Two weeks to go! Oh! I am so excited!
