LBS logo London experience. World impact.

London Business School students organised one of the first TEDx conferences in the UK, with the Institute a co-founding sponsor for the event. 

These conferences give inspired thinkers and thought leaders – including faculty and students – a platform to share their big ideas. Take Nirmalaya Kumar, Visiting Professor of Marketing, who spoke at TEDx 2013 about how India had become a global hub for innovation. The video of his talk has since been viewed nearly 800,000 times on social media. 

Each year, we hold a competition for students who have a burning desire to talk passionately about their chosen subject. The best are then invited to speak at TEDx, which takes place every May.
