LOCUS-T, a leading online marketing company based in Malaysia, became one of the sponsors of the student-organized TEDx@ISKL event held last Saturday, October 11th, 2014, at the Ampang Campus of the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL).
The brand TEDx is a program consisting of self-organized local events, where “x” denotes that these events are organized independent of TED, bringing people together instead to share TED-like experiences. The TEDx initiative grants free licenses to people around the world to organize TED-style events in their communities with talks and live speakers.
The TED Conference provides the TEDx program with general guidance and subjects the said program to certain rules and regulations, all the while without being directly involved in the TEDx local events.
The TEDx@ISKL event featured speakers from all walks of life with diverse experiences, from the co-founder of a virtual medical clinic and a director of the SportsKid Project, to a renowned slam poet, and two International High School students, attempting to tackle some of humanity’s toughest questions and answered them with innovation, enterprise and enduring optimism.
This diversity is promptly reflected in topics shared, ranging from ways to encourage reading in children, by Andrew Cox, a student of ISKL; to insights about getting creative, by Ming Han Ho, a renowned Malaysian Youtuber; to experiences and details about using the internet to revolutionize healthcare and cut costs, by Dr. Jay Parkinson, CEO and co-founder of Sherpaa, one of the most renowned virtual healthcare services.
Audience comprised of guests, students, parents, alumni, faculty and friends of ISKL, equally as diverse as the speakers and topics shared, whom are of different ages and originated from a number of countries throughout the world, attended the event.
LOCUS-T, with a mission to help companies based in Malaysia to grow and reach further heights through providing top notch online marketing services, is honored to take part as a sponsor, to support such far-reaching efforts to develop communities and change the world for the better. The company will strive to continue to encourage and support similar events in the future.
