Ever wondered what moments lead people towards greatness? How a decision made on the spur of a moment leads to an impact that can be cherished for a lifetime? Witness exhilarating TED talks session at College of Engineering, Pune (COEP) on Sunday, where the speakers will collectively present stories along with ideas and thoughts that can motivate you.
In its third edition, TEDxCOEP would carry forward the legacy of avant garde discussions, with its intense, dynamic and diverse theme, SEE — Serendipity, Epiphany, Eunoia. The motive of this theme is achieving a Eunoia between the audience and the speaker through narration of anecdotes and events that proved to be a happy coincidence for the speakers, and which made them realise the greater things in life. SEE promises to be a collective bouquet of such wonderful, inspiring events which will transcend the boundaries of conventional thinking.
The goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder and provoke conversations.
The event is scheduled on March 1, 9 am onwards. The entire day is divided over three sessions scheduled from 9 am to 6 pm in Main Auditorium, COEP. The audience would be limited to 100 participants, hence prior registration is recommended. To register, visit: https://www.eventbeep.com/event/TEDxCOEP
