Staffordshire University is set to host one of the world’s leading media companies, TEDx event on Wednesday 1 February 2023. The theme of the event is “Thinking through Making” and will take place at the university’s Stoke-on-Trent campus.
Professor Martin Jones, Staffordshire University Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive said: “As a civic university and an education hub, it’s a privilege for us to host this independently organised TEDx event at Staffordshire University and especially in The Catalyst building which is a thriving hub for knowledge exchange and sparking new and original ideas.”
Earlier this year, Staffordshire University marketing lecturer Dr Joe Hazzam delivered a TEDx talk for the British University in Dubai to address some of the realities of engaging with the world via social media.
He said: “For me this was a career highlight that allowed me to share my ideas beyond academia to a worldwide audience.
“I am very excited that Staffordshire University is hosting TEDx and think the theme seems especially fitting for Stoke-on-Trent – the world capital of ceramics.”
The line-up showcases inspirational figures and changemakers in the county like co-founder of Sanctus George Bettany, The Great Pottery Thrown Down star Keith Brymer Jones, Staffordshire University expert in AI, Professor Raheel Nawaz and other creative minds.
Limited to 100 guests, members of the public can book free tickets from today for the exclusive event on Wednesday, February 1, 2023.
