Your Host, Jake Tyler

We are thrilled to announce that Jake Tyler will be hosting TEDxBrighton this year. 

Jake has been a friend of TEDxBrighton since 2017, when he joined our stage with his talk "I'm fine"- an honest, revealing and often funny, insight in to depression.

Jake has been a profound speaker on mental health for a number of years, having featured in the series "Mind over marathon" since launching his Black Dog Walks initiative.  Since his time with us on stage, Jake has pursued his career as a radio presenter, with his own show on BBC Surrey, "Open-up"; which explores a range of mental health issues with inspiring guests.

We welcome Jake back in 2019 and can't wait to see him take to the stage again.

To get up to date with what he's been up to, catch him on Instagram.

TEDx - Independently Organized Event

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

At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.

About Ted

The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and previous UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
