About TED


TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. From its start in 1984 TED grew into a  global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world.

TEDx are independently organized events endorsed by TED that help share ideas in communities around the world. ‘The Elephant In The Room’ will be the third TEDx event organized by Vlerick Business School students.

“If you can’t talk about it, you can’t change it.” ― Matt L. Rawlins

These are times of incredible advancements but also undeniable disunion, but are we really addressing the issues that are most important? The TEDx Vlerick 2017 will bring you a line up of speakers talking about issues that are there, but are somewhat neglected by most: "“The Elephants in the Room”".
