The first TEDx Oxford Brookes event of the academic year took place on Saturday 27th October, where all the hard work and inspiration from the TEDx Oxford Brookes Committee could finally be showcased in front of a sold out crowd!


This rainy Saturday evening saw over a hundred students, recent graduates and staff bundle into the Sir Kenneth Wheare Hall for a night aimed at ‘Inspiring Change’. The event saw eight individuals covering topics ranging from Fashion Innovation, to Education, all the way to Urban Development, shedding on light on how we can inspire change.


Reflecting on the event, TEDx Oxford Brookes Vice-President and event organiser, Waleed B. Khalid, commented on the what he learnt from organising the ‘Inspiring Change’ TEDx Oxford Brookes event, “Curating TEDx OxfordBrookes puts your entrepreneurial skills to a test. You learn how to be creative around solving problems when resources are limited.”


Waleed B. Khalid, received funding through Brookes Enterprise Support in our Fuel Awards 2018 for his business, ACOSITY. It was fantastic to see a Brookes Enterprise Support funded student put their entrepreneurial skills to the test and go on to be a part of something great.


It was our pleasure here at Brookes Enterprise Support to award the TEDx Society with the Societies Fund, and be the official sponsor of the event.
