About the Speaker
- The esteemed Speaker for the session will be Mr. Jerry Johnson, who is an Indian writer and speaker engaged in exploring issues related to culture, diversity, identity and empowerment. As an inspirational speaker, he has been seen at TEDxSinghagad, TEDxJHC, and the curator of TEDxChurchgate, which was Bombay’s first TEDxCity2.0 conference.

What is the Expert Class?
The Expert Class is a discussion forum that allows an open exchange of ideas between the Speaker and participants. The forum hosts a Speaker who is an expert at the topic of the discussion, and who also moderates the event in a ‘classroom’ format – one may ask questions to the Speaker in the midst of the session, seek clarifications to satiate the curious mind and even think of further ‘submissions’ on the topic!
Why the Expert Class?
The integral component of the forum is its purpose: to allow a free-flowing discussion between the Speaker and ‘students’ and seek answers to the difficult and unthought-of questions.
