Broadcast stalwart and founder of CliffCentral.com, Gareth Cliff is one of 15 speakers who have been invited to participate in the TEDx London Business School conference in London on Friday 24th April.
The event will be live streamed on CliffCentral.com from 10am until 7.30pm. Gareth will be presenting at 4.30pm.
Gareth’s talk, entitled “Africa’s New Voice” highlights the advent and explosion of digital platforms giving access to freedom of expression.
After more than a decade in traditional radio, Gareth left the medium to spearhead his online content hub.
“Our digital platform changes the game and levels the playing field. We are so much more than an online radio station. We are a multi-faceted content platform, free from traditional media restrictions or BCCSA complaints. Which means we get to stream a conference like this – offering our community access to information that ordinarily is not available to them.”
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a programme called TEDx.
TEDx is a programme of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Gareth is excited and honoured to be attending the conference.
“I am speaking alongside the likes of Udayan Goyal, Founder of Apis Growth and Alex Edmans, Professor of Finance at the London Business School. To be part of a group of speakers of this calibre, is humbling but also re-affirms that we are doing something special with CliffCentral here in South Africa.”
What I appreciate most about the TEDx conference is that the speaker simply talk about their specialty. We do not work and requires being a specialist of the subject to understand everything. With TEDx conferences, understand everything is a breeze.
