TEDxChange 2012 is a TEDx event co-organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and TED. Convened by Melinda French Gates and hosted by Chris Anderson, TEDxChange will focus on issues surrounding global health and development. TEDxChange type events are TEDx events hosted around the live webcast of some of the other events hosted around the globe today. Because of last minute issues at the venue in Soweto, we offered the team our Campus for today.

In this TEDxSowetoChange, speakers will take a step back and apply new perspectives to big picture issues: Why, as the developing world, should we continue to look to the West for our development needs? How can we work with others across borders and political boundaries to bring about positive change at home and 澳门足球博彩_2016奥运会外围赌球最新官方网站【赔率最高】 elsewhere? And what is the exchange?

It’ll also feature our very own Executive Creative Director, Fran Luckin, who’ll be speaking about the award-winning work we’ve done for the  Topsy Foundation, most notably the Selinah commercials.

Since it’s inception, Topsy has done amazing work to help people affected by HIV. The TV commercial shows how an AIDS sufferer who receives antiretrovirals can regain all the health they have lost in just 90 days. It’s called the Lazarus Effect.

With Topsy’s help we located Selinah, a patient displaying the advanced stages of AIDS, who was brave enough to agree to be filmed. Topsy started her on treatment and guard against complacency we need to remember David Ogilvy’s philosophy of Divine Discontent. We may feel good about the work, but we should never be satisfied with it”.

We are also very proud of the fact that a number of local campaigns including Mnet’s ‘Birth‘, ‘HD Colours‘ and VW’s Silent Marching Band

Here’s a selection of some of the many standout campaigns from Activations, Digital to Film….beginning with this awesome campaign for Louis Vuitton where the challenge was to bring the world to the front row of its Fashion Show at Paris Fashion Week 2011…

We all know that Ted offers inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers to a global community. In Latin America TEDx talks are still far away from common people. If we wanted to spread these ideas, we needed a more popular approach between them and TEDx….

When Dove challenged Ogilvy to dramatize the effect that women feel when using one of their nourishing body lotions, we came up with this solution…..

Our team in Taiwan have created the following film to convey that their Client for TC Bank understands, identifies and strongly supports Taiwanese people and embraces the genuine Taiwanese spirit… Enjoy!
