TEDxAuckland is a small volunteer organisation and we couldn’t make this event – or our year-round community events – happen without the support of our partners! By teaming up with like-minded organisations and companies we’re able to make our events affordable and accessible to a wide range of people, plus connect our audience with brands and products that see the world like we do.
