TEDxUoA’s mission is to kindle curiosity and action in students by providing a platform for them to present their ideas and to expose them to motivational, inspiring and thought provoking speakers from different walks of life. With the involvement of TEDxUoA, students will be able to share and develop ideas; not only for their personal growth, but also to contribute to the advancement of knowledge and ideas in New Zealand.

Our first event held in October 2017 saw near 100 attendees engage with a range of diverse, inspiring speakers and several spectacular stalls. We then saw our second event held in September 2018 where tickets sold out in a matter of days. Attendees enjoyed the inspiring and meaningful talks as well as the topics discussed which they found relevant to them.

TEAM 2019




Our theme for 2018 was 'Now What?' - focussing on the future of our world.

Our event took place on Saturday the 29th, September 2018, with a total of 9 very talented acts: 6 speakers and 3 performers. We were joined by 100 intellectual explorers, who listened and engaged, but also took part in numerous interactive activities during the breaks such as AR & VR stalls and art exhibitions.

The theme Chasing Horizons focuses on the uncertainty of the future, and the courage we must possess to keep pushing forward, to hold our heads high as we sail towards the new horizon.
