TEDxSydney is the leading platform and pipeline for the propagation of Australian ideas, creativity and innovation to the rest of the world. The 7th annual TEDxSydney event took place within the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House on Wednesday 25 May 2016.
As with previous TEDxSydney events, the full day of programming blended brand new talks from a fascinating range of speakers, unique live performances and a special film program. Find out more about all of our 2016 speakers and performers here.
