For TEDxTauranga, 30 July 2013 we had the following 4 live speakers and 2 pre-recorded TED talks (enjoyed by an audience of 100 – the maximum allowed for our first TEDx event).
1. Dean Parchomchuk & Charlotte Yates
You’ll hear their amazing story of how they changed the lives of the people on a small tropical island of Tokelau by replacing their crippling dependency on diesel generated electricity with solar power.
2. Peter Blakeway
There are few people in this world more passionate about food. You’ll hear his amazing perspective on the choices we make when we put food in our mouths. You will think differently after this talk.
3. Tommy Kapai
You’ll hear the amazing story of his life and, in particular, his startling, bold, global vision for preventing crime through story telling.
4. Nik Gregg
Want to live in a world served by compassionate business for the common good of humanity for the benefit of future generations? Good. We do too. Nik will show us the way.
Your emcee for the evening will be Sheldon Nesdale, the licence holder for TEDxTauranga.
