Another independent TED event is happening in Lagos this weekend. TEDx Gbagada will take place this weekend on Saturday, November 19 at QuadT Event Center, Gbagada, Lagos.
This year’s event is themed The Pareto Change and here’s the lineup of speakers:
- Arese Ugwu – Smart Money Africa founder

- Adepeju Jaiyeoba – Mothers Delivery Kit founder
- Temitope Okupe – Disability advocate
- Adam Alqali – African Newspage founder
- Gossy Ukanwoke – BAU Research and Development founder
Event organiser, Mercy Akamo, says, “We hope to host 300 registered individuals, but there are plans for live feed on Instagram and Twitter. That way, the conference will make a potential social media reach of more than 2,500 millennials during the conference. This year’s TEDxGbagada chose speakers from technology, writing, journalism, maternal health, filmmaking and more. Why? We have our audience in mind. We understand the multifaceted industries that are relevant to them. The overall aim of the conference is to share and birth audacious ideas and knowledge, all to and personal success, which in turn reshapes boundaries of ability and society reality.”
TEDxGbagada is licenced by TED, a US-based not-for-profit enterprise devoted to the propagation of ideas worth spreading. It celebrates and spreads locally-driven ideas in technology, science, entertainment, design and business, through conferences in more than 100 languages across the world.
Registration has ended but you can live stream the event tomorrow here.
