(Be) Bold. Never Regular

H. Murray once said: “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it”.

We hope to inspire the audience to stand out from the crowd. One has to be able to think outside the box in order to break barriers and achieve outstanding results. Therefore, we want to acknowledge those who dare to be bold. It’s thanks to people like this that the world is a better and friendlier place.

Our speakers have been chosen from the network of Fulbright Program alumni and current grantees. We want to show the world all the wonderful things they have accomplished as researchers and in their private life, and how exceptional they are. Not only are they excellent in their academic fields, but they also have courage and curiosity about the world. They brought their talents and culture to another culture during their scholarship abroad.

Creating an impact on the world requires bravery, whether you research neurons, build important museums, or write children’s books. We would like to showcase Fulbrighters representing different disciplines who have achievements in various areas. Some of our speakers will talk about their research (including in the fields of life sciences, engineering, and social sciences), while others will present on achievements outside their academic careers, such as supporting the work of others–many of our alumni are mentors. Some are the authors of mentoring programs, some run leadership programs, and others are leaders of human rights or animal rights movements.


Speakers

11 extraordinary alumni of the Fulbright Program in Poland.

What's TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFulbrightWarsaw, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxFulbrightWarsaw, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
