Commenting on this initiative, Samyak S Chakrabarty, President – Organising Committee and MD, Electronic Youth Media Group, said, “We are happy to have a diverse representation from the industry, apart from our other speakers from different backgrounds, and are looking forward to have an equally interesting audience to enable thought provoking dialogues. Since TED breaks away from traditional keynote formats, we are excited to see the above eminent figures candidly share some abstract ideas, stories and experiences that they would otherwise never do.”

Attendees have called TED “the ultimate brain spa” and “a journey into the future”. Previous speakers include Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck, Bono, Nandan Nilekani, Shekhar Kapur, Srivatsa Krishna, Harsha Bhogle, CK Prahalad, and Dr ShashiTharoor.
