GibTalks is styled on the very successful TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) series of talks, and will see a range of local speakers deliver 15 minute talks on a broad spectrum of subjects with the aim of focusing on the anecdotal, the personal, and the light-hearted as opposed to heavy-going academics and agendas.

The organisers are pleased to announce the following speakers who will represent a cross-section of the community and will help to make up a rich and varied programme:
Minister for youth, sport and housing Steven Linares
GSD MP Damon Bossino
Francesca Makey
Zyle Peralta
Stephen Hermida and Mark Randall

Luke Stagnetto
Kenneth Asquez
Youssef El Hana
Maite Facio Beanland

Luis Pereira
Paul Cosquieri (Jr)
Eddie Wood
Anita Chaperon

Tickets for the event will be on sale as from Wednesday, January 8, 2020 from the John Mackintosh Hall reception and online on www.buytickets.gi. Tickets are priced at £5.
