With our theme, A World Unbound, TEDxOxford aims to explore how modern advances are making possible the achievements that were once thought unreachable.
Shaped by their incredible stories and ideas, our speakers will explore new ideas that will inspire, empower, and motivate participants to embrace new practises and perspectives.
A sneak preview of the first of our speakers:
William Sieghart is the Chairman of the Somerset House Trust and the founder of the Forward Prizes for Poetry.
Shirley Liu is a Global Vice President at L’ORÉAL Luxe and an expert on the interaction of psychology and business.
There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 170 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1934, the third New Theatre opened. The theatre has been owned by several different companies and undergone several name changes. It is now owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group and hosts everything from ballet and opera to musicals.
