You don’t become “the Alma Mater of a Nation” without fanning the embers of change. Our speakers will explore and discuss the forces that are changing the world that we know today. From them, we will learn about how these forces — business, technology, globalization, and many more — are shaping the world that will become our future.

In its fourth year, TEDxCollegeofWilliam&Mary is taking its next step from commemorating the College’s long-standing history to realizing exactly how we are transforming the present. Pulling speakers from various backgrounds and disciplines, we have compiled a program worth viewing for any individual curious about the different ways someone can impact the present. Our hope is to leave guests inspired too, as each one of us has the ability to impact the course of each others’ futures.

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. Beginning as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support 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 for 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), while 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, interactive transcripts, the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.

TED has established the annual TED Prize, in which exceptional individuals with a desire to change the world are given the opportunity to turn their dreams 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.
