9 months?! 9 months?!

Has it really been 9 months already?

Yes, unfortunately, December, Christmas, TEDxEuston and New Years Day were all 9 months ago, but we hope your last dose of TEDxEuston does not feel like a distant memory!

This year we have been somewhat quieter, but we have a special announcement this Saturday! So keep following us on twitter, facebook and instragram to find out more.

Until then, here are 9 TEDxEuston Vision to Reality highlights to reminisce upon, whilst you enjoy the last of summer sunshine.

1.Robtel Neajai Pailey introduced us to ‘Gbagba’ (trickery). Her beautiful book that seeks to empower our children and future generations, to boldly tackle corruption.

Perhaps someone should send Robtel’s talk to a certain ex-PM to remind them there is nothing uniquely African about corruption…

2.Question. Are you a protagonist in your own dialogue, or a subject in that of another? Thank you Nancy Kacungira for encouraging us to consult one another, tell our own stories and share our progress. Oh and thank you for telling us ‘cowardising’ is a word in Uglish.

3.Remember the emotion felt in the room as we gave Kechi Okwuchi a resounding standing ovation?
