We Pressed Pause… Now We Begin… Again

TEDxUniversityofGlasgow is looking forward to the year’s rescheduled Main Conference, March 17th! We’re sure that many of you were geared up for the original conference date, last week (March 3rd).

Have you seen the new TEDxUofG video?

Are you interested in some Behind The Scenes photos from our shooting weekend? It involved 10-12 hours-long workdays, shooting at 30 different locations with the whole team behind TEDxUniversityofGlasgow 2018 | Press Pause to Begin, and also an exciting afternoon at the Unit 23 Skatepark, with Hector Spencer-Wood (aka the BMX guy in our storyline)….

Happy 2018!

It’s that time of year again… New Year’s resolution time! Looking back at 2017, many of us like to make resolutions, to imagine what we can change, improve, and master in 2018. Maybe you’ve bought some squeaky clean, new trainers for that gym membership card lying somewhere in your room. Maybe this year you plan…

Happy holidays from us to you!

It’s that time of year again! The rain has turned to – well – colder rain. The wind has turned to icy gusts, and the sky has turned silver with stars (when it’s not cloudy or rainy). So, just like us here at TEDxUniversityofGlasgow, you’ve probably noticed that it’s winter. And when it’s cold outside…

Stressed? De-stress.

It’s that time of year again! Can you feel it? The tension in your spine? The ache in your fingers from typing those last essays, writing those final notes, thumbing through those endless papers to find that quote you remember someone said at some point  in some book somewhere? If you don’t feel it, that…

Press Pause to Begin

7.15: The alarm goes off. You look at your phone. Five emails since you closed your eyes and fell asleep last night – a record low for you. One text and three messages, mostly in the form of emoticons and never-ending, repetitive GIFs. But it’s 7.15 so you set a new alarm for 8.00 and…
