The idea of speaking in public can cause most people to break out into a cold sweat.

Luckily that wasn’t the case for the 8 brave speakers who took to the stage at the recent TED X event held in the Droichead Arts Centre.

It was the first time this type of event was held in the North East and Orlaith, who was part of the organising committee was delighted to MC on the night.

Speaking after the event Orlaith said “The speakers were just amazing and produced such a diverse and interesting take on the theme. They put in great work beforehand and really delivered top class talks on the day”.

Orlaith and the committee were thrilled with the turnout and the feedback they received from the participants who described taking part as a major ‘bucket list achievement’.

The committee are very hopeful of getting the licence renewed next year and turning it into an annual event – watch this space!
