When you take the plunge to put on a TEDx event, you’re never quite sure who is going to come and get behind the effort. Everyone has such busy lives, so I feel truly blessed to have been supported by an incredible team of talented and experienced volunteers who have poured their heart and souls into this project.

We are also extremely fortunate in being supported by a wider group of ‘Friends of TEDxSherborne’, helping us out with opening doors, providing advice, spreading the word and so on.

Together, we managed to put on an event that Sherborne won’t forget in a hurry. In fact, I think we’re just getting started! I was amazed by the impact we had on our audience – both the live audience in the auditorium and the 5,000+ people who watched online – who responded with so much warmth and encouragement for us to do it again. 

Putting on TEDxSherborne for the first time in 2019 was one of the most life-affirming things I’ve done in a long time.
