    Personally I thought there were a lot of flaws which made the whole stuff an insult to the TED spirit. We expect a level of quality.

    Many speakers were boring and didn’t make sense. I found only females to be intriguing speakers and I commend their efforts. Too much data on slides. The way slide-show was working seemed too amateur. The set was overcrowded, too many things happening. In breaks, why did we hear Coke Studio BTS. The best thing was the one-minute video. I hope there was more attention to details and selection of presenters.

    I am a big fan of TED.com. Love the enthusaism of the speakers there. Learnt a lot from them. There presentations are awesome and it feels like they must had lots of rehearsal before event.
    I have been to one international business competition in Sasin University bangkok. I know what it takes to deliver a quality presentation :)
    I am excited that something similar started in Karachi, will be looking forward where it goes.
