On November 16th 2022, BISP students hosted a TEDx Youth event in the BISP auditorium. The theme of the event is ‘Over the Horizon’ and featured talks delivered by BISP Head Student Matti Punno, BISP Parent, CEO and Co-Founder Sami Mian and BISP School Counsellor and Global Citizen Amber Godfrey. The talks were given using the TED conference format but were independently organised by our students and led by Y13 student Krish. We are pleased to be able to be part of the global TEDx Talks and hope these contributions from our community inspire you to be the leaders for tomorrow.
