NewportNet are hosting the first ever Pittwater satellite event in conjunction with this year's TEDxSydney next Saturday April 26th.
While the TEDx At The Beach entry ticket is free, all monies raised at the event will go towards the Newport Kinghorn Surf Racing Academy.

The TEDxSydney mission, like the TED mission, is to propagate Ideas Worth Spreading; to inform and inspire. The more specific vision for TEDxSydney is to make it the Asia Pacific region’s leading platform and pipeline for the propagation of great ideas, storytelling, creativity and actionable innovation to the rest of the world; to create and foster a sense of community amongst the people and organisations who have gathered (and continue to gather) around this event; to provide a cultural focus and impetus for conversation and debate.
