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.


"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the game." - Randy Pausch

Within TED’s spirit of ideas worth spreading and Vlerick’s goal to impact society, TEDxVlerickBusinessSchool 2018 aims to inspire our local community with exciting ideas and stories to foster learning, inspiration and wonder. Since its foundation, Vlerick Business School has been at the vanguard of business, strategy and societal change. TEDxVlerickBusinessSchool 2018 will put trends, innovations and changing ideas into perspective through testimonials of carefully selected speakers.
