Jerome Kavanagh



TEDxPipitea was challenging and super rewarding from start to finish.

The Amazing Support-by the TEDxPipitea team made everything possible even against all the odds during covid times . The entire team including speakers demonstrated super powers of determination, resilience and a cool , calm and collected manner with open hearts and true kotahitanga. My own personal experience was again challenging and helped me to develop and grow both internally and within my life's work. The speakers were a super diverse bunch of big hearted beings with a wide range of juicy kaupapa. Hope was the main kaupapa of the event and in uncertain times globally TEDxPipitea was a true testament to the aroha of humanity."
