Dee Caffari TEDxSouthampton 2020
On the 11th November at the Mayflower Centre, the TEDxSouthampton 2020 will take place. This all-day event will feature creative, thought-provoking inspiration around our theme of Human to Human Connection in all its forms and includes a focus on Innovation, Connectedness and Personal Potential.
TEDxSouthampton 2020 will feature twelve hand-picked speakers and performers who seek to inspire and create discussion around all elements of our theme including inspirational round-the-world-sailor Dee Caffari.
How can we embrace our personal capital and be more vulnerable, showcasing our human side? How can we challenge ourselves, overcome adversity and champion our own growth and potential? How can we recognise and tap into the greatness that comes from being human?
Ticket holders will receive complimentary refreshments over the course of the day, benefit from breakouts for discussion and celebrate the success of the event at our TEDxSouthampton 2020 wrap party.
