What is a TEDxSurrey Salon?


Are you a TED enthusiast who finds real joy in watching and learning from TED videos? Do you enjoy being in the company of thinkers, creators, doers, and makers? Are you interested in deepening your understanding of important ideas that can shift your thinking and, perhaps, add a new practice or perspective in your life? 

If so, a TEDxSurrey Salon event is definitely something you need to check out.

Salons focus on one specific idea, rather than a variety of different ideas that are presented at a regular TEDx event. A Salon lasts for approximately 2 hours and the one specific idea is explored in-depth by three different speakers who have expertise in the area. There is plenty of opportunity for audience participation.

Over the past year we have held our first two TEDxSurrey Salons and they have been really well-received. Audience members love the intimacy of the event and the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers. People enjoy listening to different perspectives on the same theme. Conversations that were started at the break with other audience members are often continued later through email or personal contact.

There is always such a buzz after each event that we have a challenge in asking people to leave because they are so involved in discussion with speakers or other Salon attendees.

Salons spark our imaginations and keep us abreast of important ideas that need to be explored. They are stimulating, inspiring and fun.

If you are a TED enthusiast, waiting a whole year to attend the next TEDxSurrey flagship event is far too long. The Salons offer a perfect TEDxSurrey snack as you wait for the annual full TEDxSurrey 4-course dinner!
