The first-ever TEDx event in the Cayman Islands was held April 3, 2014, and featured 11 speakers who showcased their own ideas worth spreading to 100 delegates live. Designed to give communities, organisations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences, Tower jumped at the chance to partner and be involved with TEDxSevenMileBeach and the incredible team of volunteers. TEDxSevenMileBeach engaged our community and exposed the world to Cayman’s thought-leaders and talented group of entrepreneurial minds who gathered to attend. With over 9,800 views of TEDxSevenMileBeach official Talks on YouTube, this wide-reaching event was nothing short of amazing.
On June 10, 2015, 13 speakers uplifted and challenged their audience with passionate talks at the second TEDxSevenMileBeach. The 110 people who were in attendance enjoyed thought-provoking presentations which spoke to the theme: The Life of an Idea: Plant. Nourish. Harvest., with each speaker giving talks on heartfelt issues affecting the Cayman community.
TEDxSevenMileBeach was broadcast live through Livestream again in 2015, with over 2700 unique viewers watching, a 297% increase from 2014. The livestream viewers were from 65 countries combined, a significant accomplishment for such a young event.
