Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort To Host 2015 TEDxSevenMileBeach
Our Beach House is very proud to be hosting the 2nd annual TEDxSevenMileBeach event, taking place on Wednesday, 10 June 2015. This year’s theme is “The Life of an Idea: Plant, Nourish, Harvest.”
TEDxSevenMileBeach, an independently organized event, will welcome both local and international speakers who will share their inspirational stories in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less).
Last year saw 100 attendees and 11 speakers, including motivational speaker Javier Sanchez, mental health counselor Taylor Burrowes and Lady Rabia Abdul-Hakim, the children’s author and poet. It was a complete success, with the TEDxSevenMileBeach Talks attracting more than 9,800 views on YouTube within 4 weeks of the live event.
TED is a non-profit foundation devoted to spreading ideas. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics – from science to business to global issues – in more than 100 languages. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world – believing passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
Independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-inspired experience.
Organizer of TEDxSevenMileBeach, Marzeta Bodden, said: “TED and TEDx events around the world are changing the way we learn and live. Some of the biggest and well-known companies in the world like IBM, GE, Citi, and Disney proudly stand as global partners in this movement of spreading ideas. On the local level, change is being effected as well and with the support of organizations like Marriott, the potential impact of the elevated discussions and meaningful connections is deepened and accelerated. TEDxSevenMileBeach is a catalyst for sharing community- and world-changing ideas in the Cayman Islands and we're pleased to have a partner like Marriott to make this event possible.”
The Beach House is excited to welcome Cayman’s creative thinkers and visionaries at this year’s TEDxSevenMileBeach event! The conference menu and décor will be inspired by innovative elements relating to the theme of “The Life of an Idea: Plant, Nourish, Harvest.” Watch this space for more information on the 2015 speaker line-up.
