TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities. Follow TED on Twitter at, or on Facebook at

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGCET, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

TEDxGCET is being organized independently by GCET. We believe ideas have the power to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. In line with the spirit of TED conferences held world wide over, we aim to provide a platform that brings together people from all walks of life under one roof.

Theme - Canvasing Destinies

Destiny- being any individual's calling, is the very reason why we are all an infinitesimal part of this humongous universe. As some manage to justify their calling against all odds and evens, some more fortunate ones influence other's lives for the good. They canvas destinies.
We believe in purposes, in callings, in destinies and how they can be created or altered with will. We believe anybody can canvas destinies with conviction towards what feels right to them and love for what they do.
