Highlights from TEDxJIS: Crossing Paths

“It is amazing that I’m being part of something that is so much bigger than just this room.”

This was the response from of one of our speakers, Cipta Croft-Cusworth, when we asked him to reflect on his experience at the conference. Providing a chance to have an active interaction between audience and speakers, TEDxJIS 2018: Crossing Paths built an intersecting path, connecting them.

The TEDxJIS 2018 conference had the theme of Crossing Paths. With a full house, the audience was filled with anticipation for ideas worth spreading as the event started. The event featured a variety of great stories and ideas from various speakers, which included students, educator, artists, alumni and athletes. In addition, performers presenting the theme with the different type of arts enriched the conference and showed us more than describing with words.

This is a continuation from the previous highlights of TEDxJISSalon: Women in Leadership where it is only about the panelists.

The first panel discussion was held by Erin McKee and Meilyn Tan regarding their balancing act in terms of responsibility of education and communication. An audience member asked, “What is the definition of having it all?” The answer was, “It depends. It depends on where your vision of success comes from. Don’t abandon having that vision of success when others tell you to do so. Instead, be driven from what others think because it should be you, making the decisions.”
