Faridoun Hemani is a broadcast journalist, and founder of independent production company Linx Productions. He has been in the television news business for 35 years, and has covered major international stories around the world -- from the assassination of President Sadat in 1981 for CNN, to the civil war in Lebanon and events in India and Pakistan for ABC News, and as the Bureau Chief for Central Eastern Europe for WTN (Worldwide Television News), covered the revolutions of Central Europe, the violent breakup of Yugoslavia, and the war in Iraq and Somalia. Today, Faridoun works with organizations such as the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), the UN and other international organizations covering stories of a social nature in the developing world. In 2010, Faridoun co-produced a 6-part series on Human Trafficking (as part of Moonbeam-Linx), that aired on BBC World Television. The series was supported and funded by End Human Trafficking Now (EHTN), a Geneva based organization that encourages businesses to take an active role to stem this modern form of slavery.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
