Only one day to go until TEDxMonteCarlo hits the stage at Grimaldi Forum on Saturday, when an impressive list of speakers will engage the audience across the one-day event, with short talks on topics that include sustainability, entertainment and global issues.
TED began in 1984 and the concept has become a global phenomenon: every second, 17 TED Talks are viewed at ted.com, in over 100 languages. As MonacoUSA Director Annette Anderson told Monaco Life earlier, “TEDxMonteCarlo is a prestigious event with global exposure that will reinforce Monaco’s message that the Principality and its residents are so much more than the stereotyped ‘bling and ker-ching!’ image portrayed by the media.”
A not-to-be-missed conference, the list of performers is as diverse as Monaco itself, with something for everyone, from Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag to Bertrand Petyt speaking about how art can be used for good and sustainability, and from Jenke Ahmed Tailly, a creative stylist working with celebrities like Beyoncé, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, to Alan Coxon, TV Presenter and Food Archeologist, who will explore “50 Tastes of Grey”.
Another powerful message will be delivered by Sara Elizabeth Dill, the Director and Chief Counsel Criminal Justice Standards and Policy, an expert in refugee determination, human trafficking and free speech. And Françoise Meunier, Director of Special Projects for the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer will share her views on life after cancer.
