Introducing our speakers
At the age of 17, I fell off a tree, injured my spinal cord and became paralyzed. Since then I "walk" only with a wheelchair. After the accident I "survived" living in a small town in the mountains for ten years. Although one usually likes one’s birthplace, it is very hard for a wheelchair user to looking for one’s occupation and fulfilment of one’s dreams.

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 TEDxBrno, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBrno 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. More about TED a TEDx
