TEDx Leicester

Project Detail

During my college years, my interest in video work led me to volunteer for TedxLeicester. I approached this opportunity with an open mind and had the chance to meet Siddhi, who was the Director at the time, and Alan, the License Holder. When I expressed my desire to pursue video production, they introduced me to Dan Lamoon, an experienced filmmaker. Collaboratively, we crafted a series of advertisements that played a significant role in boosting ticket sales for the 2016 event, “Every Journey Matters.”


What I couldn’t have foreseen at the time was that the same filmmaker, Dan Lamoon, would later become my employer.

The journey

That single event served as a catalyst, propelling me into the role of Technical and Creative Director at TEDxLeicester. Working in close collaboration with Siddhi and a dedicated team, our mission was to orchestrate vibrant feature events, complete with a diverse range of engaging filmed content.

TEDx Leicester Every Journey Matters

The event was meticulously crafted with the intention of delving into the rich tapestry of Leicester’s vibrant and diverse heritage. Its primary aim was to uncover and celebrate the multitude of captivating stories that collectively contribute to the city’s unique cultural landscape.

TEDx Leicester Salons

Salons were thoughtfully curated as independent, forum-style gatherings, intentionally designed to foster a sense of intimacy and engagement. These hosted events served as vibrant platforms to kickstart intriguing debates, ensuring the active participation of a diverse array of individuals.

TEDx Leicester Bold and Brilliant

The event served as a remarkable platform to highlight the outstanding achievements of prominent women in the industry. It garnered an impressive turnout, featuring a diverse line-up of influential speakers who shared their insights and expertise, making it an insightful and impactful gathering.
