TEDxGlasgow will be holding its fourth major annual event on Friday 3 June 2016 at the Theatre Royal, Glasgow, with the latest session focusing on the digital disruption of technology, entertainment and design sectors.

This year’s theme of ‘A Disruptive World’ considers how we can encourage disruption as a force for good to change our way of thinking, our actions and our wider communities. Against the backdrop of 2016 being Scotland’s ‘Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design’, TEDxGlasgow brings together a host of creative thinkers as speakers, ranging from sea captain turned beer entrepreneur James Watt of BrewDog, former BBC journalist and writer Anne Ellis, Luke Robertson, the youngest Scot to ever complete a solo expedition to the South Pole and Dr Ravinder Dahiya, a researcher and engineer who is developing cutting edge electronic skin.

Cat Leaver, head of communications at TEDxGlasgow and head of strategy at digital agency We Are AD, said: “TEDxGlasgow is a unique platform for change and we are honoured to have access to such an incredible community. We’re really excited to take things to a new level this year, building on our previous successes and opening our doors to even more curious minds and pioneering speakers. Our speakers this year are bringing a fascinating breadth of topics to our stage and we can’t wait to share these with you.”

Run by a team of volunteers, TEDxGlasgow is a non-profit organisation, which builds on the global TED culture of creativity, innovation and collaboration. You can find out more about TEDxGlasgow and register for tickets here.
