TEDxUniversityofIbadan (Creating Meaning)


TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. 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 conveners believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So they are building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers with the theme: Creating Meaning.

Speakers for this August Event are:

  • Mr.  Remi Okunlola, Cofounder & Executive Director, Seawolf Oilfield Services Limited
  • Mrs. Funmi Roberts, Principal Partner, Funmi Roberts & Co
