I’m Caroline Howden. I’ve been part of the TEDxFolkestone team from the beginning, bringing my years of experience as a project and programme manager in the public sector (plus my clip board and Gantt charts) to the role of Producer and Director. As someone who loves public speaking (yes we weird creatures do exist) I relish the opportunity of being behind the scenes, helping those who may have never enjoyed public speaking or maybe never done it, to develop and grow in confidence as they prepare and give their TED talks. My role is to ensure that we have the best staging, lighting, sound, filming and editing that we can, to ensure their ideas have the best chance of being seen and heard.
