TEDx FORE School of Management


In reality, change isn’t brought by heroes who can soar through the skies at the speed of light or catch a bullet between their teeth. It is the ordinary people who have the courage to do something unconventional. We at TEDxFORESchool 2020 provided a podium to these stories who cater to such change and inspire the little us that lives inside of us. Our community that celebrates this uniqueness and progressive movement invite you to be a part of this exquisite journey and serenity. It was yet another initiative by our institute to host the brightest minds and give them the platform for their ideas and encourage them to build a future that the world aspires. We had speakers who weren't afraid of falling to rise, this is why the theme for our event was “Falling Upwards”.

It was a full-day event held on the 25th of January, 2020 with an audience of around 100 students, corporates, educationists and the brightest minds of our nation. The goal was to share stories on a wide range of subjects that are idea-focussed, foster learning, inspiring, and provoke conversations that matter.

The talks delivered in the event ranged from technology to education and even talked about ways to tackle the growing concern with Global Climate Change. The speakers were:
