What is TED all about?

Take a pick


2007. Ken Robinson.

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

What is TEDx Hannover?

We believe in the power of Ideas

TEDxHannover is an independently organized TED event operated under license from TED. At the day long conference we will feature eminent speakers from different walks of life, who will share unique ideas from Hannover and all around the globe. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitude, lives and ultimately the world. We want to present Ideas, Inventions and Research from Hannover (Germany) to the world and from the world back to Hannover.


2011. Shawn Achor.

We believe we should work hard in order to be happy, but could we be thinking about things backwards? In this fast-moving and very funny talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that, actually, happiness inspires us to be more productive.


2005. Tony Robbins.

Tony Robbins discusses the “invisible forces” that motivate everyone’s actions — and high-fives Al Gore in the front row.

What is TEDx HannoverSalon?

We believe in local communities

The salon’s flexible nature allows it to take varied forms, salon attendees always watch a selection of TED Talks, followed by discussions about the ideas.Over the years, TEDx events have evolved into microcosms of their local community, each event piecing together its own brand and identity. Salons, with their casual, intimate and malleable structure, harness the hands-on, community-focused spirit, anchoring a TEDx program. Because they happen more frequently, peppered between larger events, they create a special social cohesion.


2009. Dan Pink.

Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don’t: Traditional rewards aren’t always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories — and maybe, a way forward.
