TEDxWhitehallWomen took place at 1 More London Place on Saturday 1 December 2013 from 12:00-19:00. It was a day packed with inspiring speakers and great conversations that explored the transformational journeys of women, and the skills, tools and equipment they use to break through barriers, cross thresholds or bridge the gap between where they were and where they want to be.
Talks are now available at the TEDxWhitehallWomen playlist on Youtube. We hope you enjoy them!

What is TEDx
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.
TEDxWhitehallWomen took place at 1 More London Place on Saturday 1 December.
Here's what some of the delegates had to say about the event:
"Congratulations Ruth and your team on a very successful event. All the ingredients for a successful event came together: great venue, inspirational and authentic speakers, an eclectic group of women open to connecting, sharing, lots of laughter, tears, stories and great food and wine. As we departed a little gift of the handbag holder as a sweet and practical memento. I found the day engaging and inspirational. Thank you."
"I really enjoyed it, very inspirational"
"inspirational and thought-provoking."
It wouldn't have been possible without the project team, partners, speakers and delegates, all of whom helped to create something really special. Thanks to everyone who got involved and keep checking back for photos and films which will be available later this month.
