Together, we believe in Kiwi ideas worth spreading

At Vodafone we believe that New Zealand will be a better place to live if everyone can access the world’s best digital resources. That’s why we’re proud to be partnering with TEDxAuckland.

TEDxAuckland is an independently organised member of the global TED community. Their mission is to create the Pacific's leading platform of great ideas, story-telling, and actionable innovation. As a team they passionately believe in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world.  We’re thrilled to be collaborating to help them do this.
