In an intimate fireside chat with our guest, Maryam Pasha, we'll look at what it takes to put together the sold-out TEDxEastEnd and how Maryam trains ordinary people with extraordinary stories to become world-class speakers. 

Maryam founded, curates and hosts TEDxEastEnd, an annual conference in London on the theme of Society Beyond Borders. The conference takes 15-20 ideas and speakers from areas like science, gender equality, technology, migration, design, art and social justice and turns them into compelling talks. Maryam’s philosophy is to create experiences that go far beyond the traditional speaker-audience interaction. She has built TEDxEastEnd into a whole-day immersive event for over 1000 people and the talks from TEDxEastEnd have been viewed online over 2 million times. (see below)

Slido became a part of thousands of your wonderful events last year, and we feel it's time to give back to you, our community of industry friends. To help us say thank you, this is the second in a series of events that give you a unique opportunity to get beneath the skin of our amazing and varied industry. We've started you off with a couple of questions for Maryam on Slido but please feel free to send your curious questions here as well!

Maryam Pasha’s mission is to give life to ideas. The world is full of fascinating ideas, knowledge and theories, but they are often complex, abstract or hidden away, and hard for broad audiences to access. Maryam wants to give these ideas the chance to change the world.

She founded, curates and hosts TEDxEastEnd, an annual conference in London on the theme of Society Beyond Borders. The conference takes 15-20 ideas and speakers from areas like science, gender equality, technology, migration, design, art and social justice and turns them into compelling talks. Maryam’s philosophy is to create experiences that go far beyond the traditional speaker-audience interaction. She has built TEDxEastEnd into a whole-day immersive event for over 1000 people and the talks from TEDxEastEnd have been viewed online over 2 million times.

She has worked with the BBC, Migrants’ Rights Network, UnLtd – the foundation for social entrepreneurs and the Open Data Institute. She is currently working with Tata Consultancy Services to curate The Spark Salon – a series of events that explore the intersection of sustainability and technology. Maryam also runs storytelling, public speaking and pitching workshops and private public speaking coaching sessions for her clients.

Maryam was born in Tehran and has lived in four countries. She has an undergraduate degree from McGill University and a Masters degree in psychology from the University of Essex. Over the past 10 years she founded a social enterprise to support women’s rights, created a network for young professionals working in human rights, organised the first Global Conference on the Prevention of Genocide, and was the secretary general of a Model United Nations. She is currently writing a book on imposter syndrome and gave a TEDx talk in 2015 on “Imposter Syndrome: our shared secret”.
