Make plans to attend TEDxikeja which holds on Saturday the 14th of October, 2017 at the David’s Court, 25, Mojidi Street, by EcoBank off Toyin Street, Ikeja Lagos State. The event will run from 10:00AM – 2.00PM WAT.
Created in the spirit of the TED mission, “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals for and in Nigeria the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences in Lagos.
Themed where do we go from here, TEDxIkeja 2017 would dissect the various ugly incidences that are occurring in Europe, Asia, USA, and Africa, and offer native solution to these incidences through storytelling techniques.
In a statement released by the curator and organiser of TEDxIkeja, Ademola Adeshola, the world is at a crossroads and the present crop of leaders have not provided solutions to terrorism, terrorism financing, recession, food shortage, tsunami, and global warming.
“The fang of terrorism has sunk deep into the social-political structure of the world system while immigration has become a burden. Technology is disrupting everything. The new world has not spared our belief systems, culture, and philosophy. Yet the dividing lines between the truth and facts has blurred”, Adeshola said.
Expatiating on the thought leaders expected on October 14 at the forum, Adeshola said TEDxIkeja 2017 would aggregate ideas that facilitate new thinking. Such ideas include social reputation algorithm, suspended thinking, soft power, visual metaphor, Lassa fever detecting kits, something for the girls, stories from Internally Displaced Persons [IDP] and in need of ideology.
At TEDxLagos, live presenters will spark deep conversation and connections. The event is fully planned and coordinated independently by volunteers for and in Nigeria.
Expected at the TEDxIkeja 2017 are:
- CEO of Inlaks, Femi Adeoti;
- CEO of Quadrant Company, Bolaji Okusaga;
- Head of Digital banking, Alat, Dele Adeyinka;
- Winner of Big Brother Naija reality show, Efe Ejemba;
- MD/CEO, Studio 24, Ifeanyi Oputa;
- CTO, Social Lender, Bade Adeshemowo.
Others include Visual Artist, Visual Collaborative LLC; Comic Republic, spoken word artist, Cherry Enterfield and other thought leaders that would share native intelligence at the event.
