In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Our event is called TEDxKL, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxKL event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized

Steve McCoy – Founder and Principal of Counterpoint

Steve McCoy runs a consultancy firm providing support services on sustainability for the Corporate, Government and Non-profit sectors. Counterpoint’s work rests on the simple understanding that the challenges that confront the world today offer a broad canvas of opportunity to secure a better tomorrow, and the conviction that maintaining the status quo is no longer a viable option. Steve McCoy’s passion lies in creating ‘aha’ experiences by bringing his passion for inquiry and systems thinking to the discussion table – anticipating emerging issues, clarifying direction, and underscoring the importance of aligning groups around data-driven and evidence-based decision making. Academically, Steve read medicine, music and theology (not at the same time!) at London and Cambridge. Immediately prior to this, Steve McCoy was the CEO of the Force of Nature Aid Foundation working in the long-term recovery of communities affected by natural disasters.
