His Excellency Martin Harris, UK ambassador in Bucharest, and former extreme sports practitioner Karina Kolkekim were extremely appreciated by the public and managed to impress with their speeches.

I am very happy that so many people were present to this year’s edition of TEDxBucharest and that this networking way becomes more and more appreciated. Speakers’ stories were really inspirational and even emotional. I think we managed to offer the participants a special experience and I hope soon TEDx conferences will become an event that must be attended to every year
