This year’s theme is REINVENT: inspiring people to reinvent themselves through learning and innovation. The event will bring together local thought leaders, performers and reinventors.
What is TEDx?
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 TEDxRoyalRoadsU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxRoyalRoadsU 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.

Hatley Castle has served as a private residence, military college, mutant academy and public applied research university. With a vision of “connecting people, ideas and experiences to change lives and the world”, Royal Roads is a cornerstone in many mature students path to reinvent themselves through learning and innovation. This is increasingly relevant in today’s political, cultural and environmental climate.
Learning and leadership has taken place on the land for thousands of years. Royal Roads University rests upon the ancestral homelands of the Coast Salish people; the Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) and Lkwungen (Songhees) nations.
