In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

The workshop focused on MTP (Massive Transformative Purpose) which is now the basis and foundation of future exponential development. The examples in the workshop reflected real life businesses that have used or are using exponential strategies to grow their businesses by increasing value.
