Imagine a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking video and mind-blowing conversation. By organizing a TEDx event, you can create a unique gathering in your community that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform.

A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conferences are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common.

TEDxGreshamPlace is a Durban based organization that celebrates great ideas and forges them into actions. This platform is built around (the world renown) TED’s ideal of “Ideas Worth Spreading” and officially licensed TEDxGreshamPlace conferences and activities.

There are many great ideas scattered throughout our community, and around the globe, however they are not noticed or appreciated as they should be. We believe by discovering these great ideas, empowering their voices, and bringing them together with people who will make a difference, ideas will turn into actions.

TED Circles is an open community of small groups that engage in conversations about big ideas.

Circles can take place 100% virtually so they are helping communities stay connected, especially now. Hosted by volunteers, Circles watch and discuss a TED Talk. They share takeaways online to consider each other’s perspectives and create a global conversation. 



We’re driven by passion and curiosity. We are inspired by ideas. And we want to leave the world better than we found it. In our day jobs you can find us working in design, conservation, innovation, marketing, finance, NGOs, arts, business, public policy, health and everything in between. We work year round to bring TEDxGreshamplace and all of our activities to life:
