On Thursday 21 August 2014, TEDxJohannesburg returns as a bigger and better reincarnation of last year’s very successful episode. Once more, the event takes place at The Forum in Bryanston, a 5-star venue with all the necessary comforts to ensure that the mind is focused on taking it all in. This year’s theme, ‘We The People’, pays homage to South Africa’s 20 years of democracy and celebrates the unassumingly industrious people of this beautiful land. We've curated an exceptional lineup of speakers—men and women from a broad range of endeavours who are putting in the time, effort and imagination necessary to create a new and better life for themselves and for future generations. Their work promises to illuminate, surprise, astound, reveal and inspire.
