TED started a program of local, self organized events to provide a TED-like experience to all, called TEDx (where x = independently organized TED event). This program inspired the International Affairs Society (IAS) at the Forman Christian College (FCC) in Lahore to host their second TEDx event and provide a platform to share cultures and experiences among different individuals again.
The theme behind their event is “INNOVATION – Harnessing The Hidden Revolution.” They “strongly believe that innovation drives growth, resuscitate mature industries and opens up new opportunities for a better tomorrow.”
The TEDxFCCollege program comprises TED Talks videos and live speakers. They have invited speakers from all spheres of life and success: Mr. Ali Raza, Founder and Director of YES Network Pakistan; Mr. Amin Hashwani, President of the Charter for Compassion Pakistan; Ms. Mashal Peerzada a Screenwriter & Director; Mr. Muhammad Adeel, Corporate Communications Lead at InVitro Vogue; Mr. Najib Jutt, CEO/Principal of EnCorbus; Mr. Zeeshan Zafar Hashmi, Associate at Bhadari, Naqvi & Riaz and Ms. Zehra Ali, Founder & CEO of Ghonsia – a dynamic panel of speakers indeed.
So join the TEDxFCCollege Team at Armacost Building S-009,Forman Christian College on December 8th, 2012 from 3pm-7:30pm as they celebrate the harnessing of the hidden revolution.
”The tools of the hidden revolution are innumerable and varied. For TEDxFCCollege, it is a matter of highlighting who is using them, and how.”
