Ardene Sirjoo (2014 – 2015)

Ardene Sirjoo gets fired up about finding common ground to mobilize people. Ultimately interested in affecting positive change, she is driven to connect the right people to various causes and audiences. Her 8 years’ experience in radio broadcasting allows her to draw on human and information resources that support her work both on and off-air. With a solid, postsecondary foundation in political education and the experience of student activism at the UWI St Augustine campus, Ardene’s foray into radio with i95.5fm at the start of the 2007 general election campaign seemed logical. Since that time, she has cohosted several talk shows, three of which she has helped to establish, including two daily programs. She has taken advantage of a range of additional opportunities, from production to live reporting to hosting diverse panel discussions. Still with i95.5fm, she is now in her fifth year of cohosting the weekly current affairs talk show, “The 95 Mandate”. Ardene has also worked with a number of entities coordinating, curating and supporting projects in areas such as human rights, food security, capacity building, culture, entertainment, and social outreach. Committed to continued learning, she is currently pursuing the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification with the aim of applying this skill set to the execution and implementation of development projects relevant to the arts and culture.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPortofSpain, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPortofSpain event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Learn more about TEDx. Learn more about TEDx
