It is a pleasure for Monarch to present Dr. Justin Kennedy, Professor of Neuroscience at Monarch Business School and the University of Pretoria with his talk on “Your Brain Is A Selfish Democrat” at the TEDx conference in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2014. Dr. Kennedy also introduces a program that helps to develop the next generation of women leaders in Africa.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. About TEDx, x = 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.
