28th January 2015

It’s a piece of news that will fill any organization anywhere in the world with pride. Hence it’s not surprising that FORE School of Management, New Delhi is highly enthusiastic about its TEDx talk that will be held on 31st of January.


TED, an annual event, which brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas in several disciplines, needs no introduction. TED Talks that are made available online after the conference have found huge popularity all over the world. TEDx is an initiative in the same vein and a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED like experience. By becoming a TEDx licensee, FORE School of Management, New Delhi has added another feather in its cap.


The theme for this TedxFORESchool talk, which is an independently organized TED event, is “Past. Present. Future?” The talks will be centred around sustainable development across three integral elements of human existence; Environment, People and Economics. These are the issues that matter and need to be talked about, which is something the event hopes to do. And in keeping with the tradition of TEDx events, there will be notable persons from different fields presenting their ideas and discussing things that matter.
