Nominations For TEDx Chandigarh 2018 Speakers Are Open


The single mention of the word itself inspires new ideas, passion, conviction, intellect and humans’ unending pursuit towards self-actualization. 

Last year’s January witnessed the beginning of such inspiration running high in the region when TEDx Chandigarh brought some of the best minds from different walks of life, from around the world on a single podium, sharing their thrilling stories with a common denominator ‘perseverance never goes unrewarded’. Be it Abhinav Bindra’s or Ravi Singh’s or the ever loving Ssumier Pasricha aka Pammi Aunty, every speaker shook each and everyone present there in the ISB, Mohali auditorium from their deep slumber.


NOW TEDx Chandigarh is back!

TEDx Chandigarh is gearing up for another stimulating and intriguing session in January 2018.

TEDx Chandigarh is inviting speakers for its next session.


Do You Have What It Takes To Be TEDx Chandigarh Speaker?

The theme of TEDx Chandigarh 2018 is Past-Present-Future. 

The idea behind the theme is the fact that we are progressing towards the future so fast, that we need to know our history as well. Because one (past, present, and future) does not exist without the other. 

TEDx Chandigarh 2018 will thus portray ‘Remember the past, Embrace our present and Build the future.’

Who can be the TEDx Chandigarh 2018 SPEAKERS?

Thinkers, doers, and Idea-generators. People who didn’t just think about it but also did something about it. People whose story can make the world better, one step at a time.
