Next Event: November 1, 2019

Theme: Influence

This year’s TEDxWestChester features speakers who explore the influence we exert on one another, on our communities, on our own minds. They are influencers and innovators improving lives locally in our Chester County and Philadelphia neighborhoods. Their experiences have shaped their ideas – and – their ideas are shaping the future.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxWestChester, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxWestChester event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
