[UPDATE: Unsurprisingly, this offer was almost instantly oversubscribed. Sorry to anyone who’s only just heard. Yay! for those who got their places]
So this is what I squealed with excitement about yesterday on twitter (not what I swore about today – that’s something else that I’ll write about soon)
I’m going to assume that most people who’ve been to Tuttle or read this blog have heard of the TED conference. If not, I don’t mean to shame you, but really! Go here and check it out, then come back.
So normally you’d expect to have to go to California *and* pay a large amount of money to be part of this experience. OK so the one coming up is in Oxford, so you’d still have to go all the way to *Oxford* (!) but perhaps more challengingly, pay a large amount of money to be part of this experience.
Yesterday, I got a call from Alex at Wieden & Kennedy to say that they were helping Nokia put together an event in a couple of weeks, live-streaming from the TED conference in Oxford at the w+k offices in E1 for FREE and did I know any people in the kind of creative & digital space who might be interested in going along.
That’s when I squealed.
So here is the sign up page for us on Wednesday 22nd – we’ve divided the day up into four slots to maximise the number of people who can take part. You might like to take a look at the schedule to see which slot you’d like most to book. Please don’t be greedy, I know tuttlers aren’t greedy.
There are also sessions on Tuesday afternoon, which is reserved for “Women in Tech” (yes *Women* only – no “Laydees”) and Thursday which is reserved for “Youth” ie people aged 16-25 Please don’t book slots on more than one day. Again, that will help make sure that as many people can come as possible.
