These conversations are centred around; technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business and development.
At its core, the fundamental goal of TED and TEDxArgungu is to foster and spread great ideas within Nigeria and globally by exporting culture, skills and the vast creativity of Nigerians. The ideas and discussions generated from TEDxArgungu will awaken the international community to rising talents within Nigeria and foster the creation of fresh networks within and outside of the country.
We aim to provide a platform where attendees can learn from the experiences of the speakers and be inspired to carve their own path.
