ramsac proud to sponsor TEDx Woking for 4th year.
Posted on January 23, 2023 by Louise Howland
We were proud to once again be sponsors for TEDxWoking in November 2022 (for the fourth year in a row) The theme this year was Our Future. The event attracted 85 speaker applications, resulting in 20 auditions and ultimately seven people taking to the world-famous red circle.
The first time we were involved in a TEDx Woking event was back in 2017 when ramsac’s Managing Director, Rob May gave a talk; Your human Firewall – The Answer to the Cyber Security Problem. To date that talk has had over 281,000 views on YouTube, 269,000 views on TED.com and has spawned two books.
Commenting on this latest TEDx event Rob said
“There is a unique magic about TEDx, the journey that the speaker takes in order to hone their ‘idea worth spreading’ along with the strict formulaic guidelines is like nothing else in the public speaking world. It is also very much a community event, this year we were able to hold the event in the heart of Surrey using the fantastic facilities at Christ Church Woking. The talks were brilliant, the atmosphere was supportive and positive and everyone had a brilliant time. It is an honour and a pleasure to be able to be so involved with TEDx and as a business ramsac are delighted to be able to support the event.”
After a live TEDx event there is an inevitable wait whilst the videos are authorised and checked to ensure they all meet the TED guidelines, but that delay is over and we are delighted that all of the talks are now available to watch on the TEDx YouTube channel.
