If you and your friends are still contemplating how you should spend your Saturday afternoon, here are 5 reasons why you should turn the power of your ‘X’ on.
Tap the minds of thought-leaders
The global TEDx community has always been like a big family. The sessions and relationship between the presenters and attendees are intimate in an open way. Besides gaining interesting insights from amazing stories and life experiences shared by the presenters on stage, participants get to pick their minds and share purposeful conversations with them off-stage as well.

The best advice any TED-ster would give in order for one to fully explore potential possibilities during TEDx is to suspend your conventional assumptions.  The magic truly happens when you open your mind.

Connect through enlightening interactivity
TEDx is a unique platform for individuals from any walk of life to participate and contribute. Because of this inimitable attribute of the TEDx platform, it naturally creates a highly-dynamic environment for attendees, speakers and organizers to interact, share ideas and build lasting relationships.

It is an avenue where people get the opportunity to network and engage with like-minded individuals that share the same passion, vision or purpose despite the diversity in backgrounds. Many ideas, business opportunities, social causes and activities have been sparked and thus brought to life by people who merely connected at TEDx events around the world. Raise your level of awareness
This is a brilliant quote from an attendee of TEDxSanDiego about what TEDx is. The meaning of TEDx to her is: ”To experience & grow into perspectives outside of my own everyday thinking.” – @MicheleDortch.

This eloquently summarizes the essence of TEDx which is to discover possibilities beyond our usual boundaries.  The diversity of local and global issues that the presenters bring forth are usually thought-provoking and sometimes paradigm-shifting. Whether it is to raise the level of awareness by 1% or 100%; the message that each presenter covey will in most cases directly or indirectly create a domino effect of positive impact to society.

Be a part of a locally-global community
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” It is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.

To give you an idea, these are some of the TEDx events around the world which are held on a regular basis. TEDxNasa, TEDxManhattanBeach, TEDxMelbourne, TEDxSingapore, TEDxDubai, TEDxTokyo, TEDxTaipei, TEDxParis, TEDxAmsterdam, TEDxBerlin, TEDxChelsea, TEDxBelfast, TEDxNewYork, TEDxMidAtlantic, TEDxMadrid.

More than 4,300 TEDx events have taken place in 1,200 cities and 133 countries around the world. All these communities are inter-connected through TEDx-ters online and offline. Being part of it you can be rest assured you are welcomed with open arms by any TEDx community around the world wherever you go.

It is as if there is a mutual bond with attendees, presenters and organizers. It is a truly organic platform which embodies the meaning of being a global citizen. Be inspired to re-inspire
The positive outcome of having engaged with thought-leaders and networking with purpose-driven individuals to broaden your horizons is really to take the opportunity to Stop, Reflect and Be.  Allowing yourself to be inspired and to take this spark of inspiration, using it to light up more flames in the world – embracing it to re-inspire and contribute towards enriching the lives of others in your very own little way.

Collectively we are the power of ‘X’!
