TEDxAuckland is bringing together several of New Zealand’s most interesting minds for a full day of stimulating talks, discussions and learning this October.
Tickets are now available for purchase from The Edge for $70 + booking fees.
Get in early for tickets, apparently you get better seats the earlier you book.

It looks like there will be a few tickets available we can probably lay our hands on. Despite some partner coercion, Anthony in Dunedin would probably be a better decision maker about who gets them. Any ideas how we allocate them (me – is not an acceptable answer – as I told Lyn this morning)
