In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDxNorthernSydneyInstitute presents Shift, an event featuring brilliant speakers, inspirational videos and mind-blowing conversation.

At our event, TEDTalk videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea focused, to foster learning, innovation and wonder – and provide conversations that matter.

Shift is about pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo, embracing the new and always moving forward. Change can be radical or it can be microscopic, but each small step forward is a Shift. A Shift can reframe our perception of what is possible and move us closer to transforming our ideas into reality.

The future is always just around the corner. A world full of exciting new possibilities and adventure is out there. It’s up to us to shape what happens next.


TED is a global foundation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then, its scope has become even broader, from science to business to global issues. With its two annual conferences, video website, initiatives and community projects, TED is now a platform and a global movement focused on meaningful change through the power of ideas. TEDx events are community driven events that inspire innovation, thought leadership and visionary insight.


TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxNorthernSydneyInstitute, where x=independently organised 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-organised.
