Unleashing your untapped potential

Throughout the day there will be opportunities to interact with international speakers on points such as digital identity and mental well-being. The event looks to go into topics such as identity ownership, valuing relationships with nature, and using drama to help troubled youth.

The event will also see a mystery speaker who is a world-renowned artist who will be sure to amaze visitors during the day.

Towards the end of TEDx Aston University there will be workshops conducted to help educate and help you ‘untap’ your potential.

Learn something new

Students and non-students alike will find the event inspirational with ‘thought provoking’ talks and networking sessions. With a wide range of topics to be discussed, there will be something for everyone to learn and take away with them at the event.

This year’s theme is chosen to identify and showcase the lesser known but impactful people, businesses, and ideas of Birmingham to the world.

The day is hoping to ‘challenge perspectives’ and initiate conversations in the right direction. Visitors will also get the opportunity to network with influential businesses and emerging entrepreneurs from Birmingham and across the UK.
