Ben Chai has been announced as a Speaker for his second TEDx talk this year at TEDxFolkestone and will be speaking on the theme ‘Courage to step Beyond’. Chai will speak at the conference on June 23rd at Quarterhouse, Folkestone.
Chai has been selected to speak alongside Lucy Beresford, writer, psychotherapist and broadcaster on LBC Radio; Britt Whyatt, author and blogger (She Who Bakes), Cathy Sugden, the horseback heroine and 7 other great speakers.
This will be Chai’s second TEDx talk after making his TEDx debut earlier this year in March at Surrey University, where he spoke to a sold out crowd on the theme ‘Be’. Chai’s talk was focused on how to attract great people around you, speaking on the adversity he faced growing up and how he became successful by using his blueprint called ‘Social Magnetism’ which is his latest published book. Social Magnetism is a book where Chai shares his proven techniques on how to build meaningful relationships, walking away from toxic people and most importantly, the charisma required to be magnetic and successful.
His recent TEDx Talk at Surrey University which is now officially on the TEDx YouTube channel has already attracted hundreds of views despite it being online for less then a month.
One viewer, Benjamin Shanmugam said;
“That was a very encouraging and helpful message! I like the practical ‘look in the mirror’ exercise. And I loved your warm and open speaking style.”
Hackney born, Chai is nicknamed the “Dr Who of Business” having successfully run businesses in education, technology, training, cyber security, hospitality and property. He has worked with many fortune 100 companies in the areas of business systems design, implementation and education.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Monica Lewinsky, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala,Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a “wish,” or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
