Proflight Zambia has commended TEDx Lusaka for bringing together some of Zambia’s brightest minds and innovators at its 5th TEDx Lusaka event held at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre recently.
This year’s event, themed ‘To get lost is to learn the way’, brought together people from different walks of life and a spectrum of professions and industries to share inspirational ways of thinking, doing business and living life.
Proflight Zambia’s Director of Government and Industry Affairs Captain Phillip Lemba said: “We are very happy as Proflight to have been a part of this year’s event as ideas are crucial for fostering innovation and progress in any sector; the ideas of today can be the reality of tomorrow. TEDx provides a platform for more of such ideas to be shared and explored.”
The event proved to be an eye-opener for attendees as more than 800 people from all over the country garnered insight on different topics by the various speakers.
TED is a global community comprised of people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. It believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. The Zambia Chapter was created in the spirit of TED’s mission: Ideas Worth Spreading. The TEDx events are open-source, local and community-driven events that seek to inspire innovation, thought leadership and visionary insight.
“Innovation has long been the lifeblood of aviation giving rise to a more cutting edge sector over the years. Its focus on the power of the ideas to shape creativity and ingenuity speaks to the heart of the nation’s desire to build a better and accomplished future for Zambia,” he added.
Proflight has been instrumental in promoting tourism, both domestic and international, in the country as well as business travel across its network for close to 26 years now. The airline is keen to maintain its investment in science, technology, research, as well as support and encourage educational initiatives in the country.
