TEDxConcordia 2016 “Looking Beyond” conference brought together a diverse group of speakers and attendees who all share the same mission of ideas worth spreading. From the future of big data, to the importance of a raw food-based diet, and to the surprising outcome of photographing strangers, each talk culminated into a thought provoking and memorable live speaker conference experience. Fondly referred to as a Brain Spa, our conference was seen as a raving success by attendees, speakers and TED executives alike.
Looking Beyond is understanding the matter that lives below the tip of the iceberg. It elicits the visionary within us all—it means to be a challenger of norms and a catalyst for change.
THEME: LOOKING BEYOND...

Looking Beyond... is understanding the matter that lives below the tip of the iceberg. It requires deepening one’s own knowledge and discovering the true self. One is Looking Beyond when they can observe a picture in its entirety, thus crafting together an all-encom- passing perspective for any issue at hand.

It’s creating something out of sheer simplicity: art, science and even business. It’s about tearing down boundaries, looking past stereotypes and aecting a reform. It’s imagining a better world for generations to come, and actively working towards improving the community in real-time.

Looking Beyond... elicits the visionary within us all—it means to be a challenger of norms and a catalyst for change.
