TEDxWoking 2022

On 10 November 2022, TEDxWoking returned for the sixth time to Woking for an afternoon of inspirational and enlightening talks.

The theme was Our Future, and we heard from some exceptional people with great 'ideas worth spreading’.

The event was once again opened by Rob May, who gave his TEDxWoking Talk in 2017.

  • My first TEDx talk in 2017 opened many international doors for me (and resulted in two published books). I’m now delighted to support TEDx Woking both through event sponsorship and guidance and support for our inspiring speakers.
