With just 15 days to go until TEDxDarwinWomen, we are looking forward to catching up with friends old and new.
We are proud to introduce TEDxPalmerston, the newest TEDx event in the Territory.Licensee Sarah Harkin says “TEDxPalmerston is a growing community of folks who call Palmerston home. We created this community as a safe place for TED fans to unleash his or her inner nerd.”
Organisers Sarah Harkin (Licensee), Troy Harkin, Gabrielle Kaoustos, and Ruth Caddy are working to bring you TEDxPalmerston on 1 August 2015.

More than 150 TEDxWomen events will be held around the world to share the TEDWomen 2015 livestream. This is truly a global conversation celebrating movers and makers; designers and do-ers; local problem-solvers and global leaders. This year, we have two exciting local events: TEDxDarwinWomen and TEDxPalmerstonWomen.
The theme for TEDWomen 2015 is Momentum.
Momentum. Moving forward. Gaining speed. Building traction. TEDWomen 2015 will explore the bold ideas that create momentum in how we think, live and work. From the young scientist revealing a breakthrough discovery to the activist who methodically transformed how the world thinks about women. From the veteran CEO whose trade secrets turn organisations around to the athlete whose extraordinary comeback shocked the world.
