Though we have access to Sessions 6 and 7 (Create! and Sustain!), our venue closes at 9pm, which means we’ll miss out on the remaining thirteen speakers from TED’s Wednesday programme… this also means we don’t have to stay up into the early hours!
Do join us at Leeds Met’s Rose Bowl, in room RB538 from 4:30pm to 8:45pm – we have space for around 40-60 attendees. Feel free to bring along snacks, tablets, laptops and other devices to tinker and work while watching the talks. We won’t be able to provide refreshments, but we’ll have a 45 minute break to grab a bite from the Refectory or Millennium Square.
On 27th June, LSx will be hosting a day-long simulcast of the second day of TEDGlobal 2012: Radical Openness, live from Edinburgh. The simulcast will include sessions 4, 5, 6 and 7, with 20 speakers from the TEDGlobal programme.

We’re never quite sure how our guests will respond to TED’s simulcasts. Hosting TEDxChange in Leeds back in September was a strange experience – great content, but without live speakers here in Leeds, a somewhat detached experience.
Though we only had a handful of people join us yesterday evening for the opening session of the inaugural TEDWomen conference, the more intimate round-table setting, tasty locally baked pizza and some great conversation meant we enjoyed a fun few hours.
Session 1 included a provocative interview with Ted Turner and great discussions from Hanna Rosin and Halla Tomasdottir as well as some witty cartoons from Liza Donnelly. However, what was surprising was the conversation around the table – what was happening in Washington DC was simply background to a lively discussion that ranged from feminism in Frank Herbert’s Dune and Y: The Last Man, equality in paternity and maternity leave and whether Ted Turner’s view that restricting politics to women would end war -he’s clearly never come across the works of Condoleeza Rice, Margaret Thatcher or Indira Gandhi!
Thanks to Linda Broughton, Emma Cheshire, Talia Hussein, Lorna Mitchell, Tim Medcalf and Robert Burrell-Donkin for making it a great evening :)
