I am an organizer since April 2013 for TEDxAuckland. The independently organized TED event takes place on 03 August 2013 in Aotea Square.

TEDxAuckland 2013 gathered 2,500 attendees. After 7,000 global TEDx events, TEDxAuckland might have been the largest TEDx event, ever.

My duties:

  • Developed theme “convergemerge” (Convergence + Emergence) beautifully brought to life by Emma Rogan.
  • Sourcing National Sponsors (Achieved: ASB Bank)
  • Securing Event Partners (BizDojo)
  • Building & Coordinating Design Volunteers ( The creative crew of #scribbleAKL built an 11 metre-high DNA helix as backdrop!)
  • Developing beyond-the-stage experiences in venue spaces (simulcast lounges, sensor art installations)
  • Coordinating upfront English Transcription for TEDtalk Translation
