Our Values

TEDxFolkestone sets out to champion all facets of innovation, collaboration and leadership.

Curated by Liù Batchelor, the Folkestone-based coach and project leader, TEDxFolkestone is organised by a team of like-minded professionals who are committed to sharing the global TEDx mission of self-organised events that highlight ideas worth spreading. Ideas are needed to fuel innovation in today’s fast-changing world. They can come from anywhere, and anyone.

TEDxFolkestone is playing its part in shaping our future world. In addition to more accomplished speakers, it offers a platform for ‘unheard voices’ to provide an exciting mix of talks covering local and national issues. Our goal is to trigger discussion, provoke debate, and support the development of the new ideas that will move our world forward. We choose themes that we believe are important at individual, organisational and societal levels.

The event is entirely organised by volunteers and made possible by the generosity of our sponsors. Our sincere thanks everyone who helps make TEDxFolkestone possible.
