Partner Lead

Jude is the person responsible for the care and nurturing of TEDxCanberra’s community of partners.

What do you do at TEDxCanberra?

I’ll be working with TEDxCanberra’s marvellous partners, cultivating a mutually rewarding relationship which does not follow the usual sponsorship model.

What would you talk about dur­ing a 3-minute TEDx Talk?

More peo­ple need to know how com­mon it is to be adversely affected by nat­ural and arti­fi­cial chem­i­cals. They can affect our mood, learn­ing abil­ity, hyper­ac­tiv­ity as well as a myr­iad of phys­i­cal symp­toms includ­ing asthma, eczema, IBS, etc. My talk would about my per­sonal expe­ri­ences in this area, sup­ported by sci­en­tific research and strong expe­ri­en­tial feed­back from schools and other savvy organ­i­sa­tions. A sur­pris­ing (and life-changing) real­i­sa­tion for many is that some­thing as harm­less as fruit can have a markedly neg­a­tive effect on peo­ple who are sen­si­tive to sal­i­cy­lates.

Come up with five words that describe you.

Curi­ous, con­scious, searcher, foodie, cheese-maker.
