TEDxBUET recently for the second time organised an event that brought stories of people who are successful in life. The event chronicles the tales of those who made the impossible possible, those who turned the unthinkable into the quotidian.
Speakers at the event were Akram Khan, former Bangladesh cricket team captain; Nishat Mazumder, first Bangladeshi woman to scale Mount Everest; Major General Abu Sayeed Md. Masud, Chairman of Jolshiri Abashon; Atiqul Islam, Mayor of Dhaka North City Corporation; and Dr. Celia Shahnaz, Chair of IEEE Bangladesh Section and Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, BUET.
The attendees were greeted by TEDxBUET Moderator Dr. MD Sabbir Mostafa Khan; Co-Moderator Dr. Celia Shahnaz; Climate Change researcher and TEDxBUET Co-Moderator Sadia Binte Mahtab; licensee Maftahul Islam; and Co-Organiser Alif Al Arefin Prodhan.
TED is a non-profit 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.
