TEDxSalford (28 Jan 2012): 10 hours of mind-blowing inspiration

18 Mar

2012 can already be dubbed the TEDx year for me, as it’s only mid-March and I have already attended and even contributed to two TEDx events! First up was TEDxSalford in late January and 2 weeks later it was TEDxManchester!

TEDxSalford took place on a very sunny Saturday (28th January) at the futuristic Lowry building in Media City, Salford.

I was tweeting for most of the event  (or when my phone battery was not dead!) and I have compiled below a list of all my relevant tweets and retweets both from the day and in the build-up to the event. I am going to add later on some notes I took while I couldn’t tweet! Hopefully the tweets convey the spirit of  TEDxSalford, which can be summarised as follows: @TEDxSalford was mindblowing! So much intellect, so much empathy, so much emotion, all rolled into one .
