On Saturday, December 10, 2010, from 8:00AM – 5PM GMT, the inaugural TEDxDzorwulu conference will be held at the African Regent Hotel in Accra Ghana on the theme: Think, Create and Innovate.
TEDxDzorwulu will focus on innovation that has taken us beyond traditional thinking and is producing budding Entrepreneurs from across Ghana whose inventions and ideas are becoming income generating ventures and also providing solutions for today’s modern societal problems.
TEDxDzorwulu speaker line up will feature five forward thinking Ghanaians from different disciplines. Wanlov the Kubolor, Fred Deegbe, Sheila Bartels-Sam, Kinna Likimani and a surprise speaker, who will be announced on the day.
The event hopes to bring together innovators, explorers, bloggers, technologists, academics and entrepreneurs who embraces and encourages collaboration, conversation and interaction. Our aim is also to create a network of doers & achievers who are ready to break through their own borders that have limited them from been able to Think, Create and Innovate.
TEDxDzorwulu will be a carefully curated event of a 100 of your smartest and most curious young innovators/entrepreneurs, CEO’s, Managers and Idealist. This is an opportunity to explore new ideas, get inspired by visionary thinkers, and gain exposure to new concepts, an afternoon of intellectual adventure.
In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxDzorwulu where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxDzorwulu, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
Seminars like these are what the youths need in Africa. We really need to be motivated to start something, most Afircan youths are lay back and allowing the westerners to cart away everything.
Too bad am not in Ghana, I would have attend this seminar!
I like what you are doing here Mr David. Well-done!
I was in Ghana from Nov 23rd – Dec 7th 2011. I wish I could have stayed longer to attend this seminar.
