Teaching leadership to young minds

Dec 4, 2012 DHNS

Sixteen industry leaders and noted speakers engaged with school students from the capital at this year’s edition of TEDxYouth.

Organised by the YES organization the conference brought together some of the brightest minds from around the globe under one roof to inspire and engage the country’s youth.

Exploring the theme ‘Relentless curiosity’, this day long conference held at the American Embassy School was streamed live to multiple locations in NCR.

Prominent Indian and international personalities from corporate, business, academics, politics, media, finance, technology, sports and development and education sectors sparked deep discussions and connection with 13-18 year old students from various Delhi schools.

 The conference witnessed stimulating talks from front runners like Airtel’s Rajan Bharti Mittal; media tycoon Rajdeep Sardesai; MP Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo; singer-songwriter Raghu Dixit and many others.


The fascinating lineup of international speakers including Europe's youngest iOS app developer Jordan Casey; America's 12-year old ‘Mathemagician’ Ethan Brown; supernatural entertainer and mentalist Lior Suchard;

Andes Survivor Eduardo Straunch; American Mathematician Arthur T Benjamin and Indian Chinese columnist Michael Anti  among others.


 The conference also included a fascinating session on the power of the mind, it’s vast potential for application and training, positive thinking and the supernatural depth of ‘Believe’ by mentalist Lior Suc­h­ard. For those scared of mathematics, the subject took new approachable meanings with Professor Benjamin and the young world record holder Ethan Brown. who compares Maths to music.

The Professor later said, “Not everyone likes Opera or Metal. Each of us find our own music. Give it a chance and don’t limit yourself. It is vast and you could find your own tune.” 

 While the talks spanned across genres and touched upon a plethora of success stories and struggles from dive­r­se verticals the underlying aim and common thread was the generation of curiosity and ideas. Mr. Rajan Bharti Mittal stressed on the significance of failure and talked about how it is a part of us.

You can’t value success if you haven’t failed. It is the first step and the game has only started. He also talked about how some are destined to succeed but most succeed beca­u­se they are determined to. In response to a student’s question he mentioned the importance of parents recognising the fact that every person or child comes with their own DNA, their own strengths and talked about the importance of carving your own niche and discovering individual path. 

 The TEDx Youth Conference thus accomplished the mission to help students develop and apply their knowledge, latent skills and attitudes associated with effective leadership.
