TWENTY-EIGHT years after kicking off in California and providing a platform for the world's greatest thinkers, TED is making an inaugural presentation in Noosa.

TED is a non-profit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started as a four-day conference in California and grew to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.

According to its website, it started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds - technology, entertainment, design - and since then its scope has become ever broader.

Brian Keays and Vivien Barry are Sunshine Coast people initiating the first forum scheduled for The J, Noosa Junction on April 12.

The annual international TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes.

Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.

TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and author Isabel Allende,

The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, along with the TEDActive simulcast in Palm Springs, the annual TEDGlobal conference is held in Scotland.

Now, after meeting prescribed qualifications, the TED formula can be recreated - this is called TEDx.
