Gareth Jenkins

Gareth Jenkins founded and is Managing Partner of Abovegroup, the region’s leading branding consultancy, and works extensively in the fields of branding, graphic design and communications strategy. After studying politics in the UK and working for about a decade in London, mainly in the financial sector, he discovered design and what has remained one of his core areas of interest – the world of identity. He’s a big believer in design and the collective responsibility of designers to develop better communities, societies and nations through their work. He started Show & Tell, Abovegroup’s highly successful series of talks; and co-founded HOME, the region’s first dedicated co-working space. He runs Picture House, a mobile classic cinema series; serves on the board of Plastikeep (Trinidad & Tobago’s largest environmental management company); and advises a number of start-ups on business and communications strategy.

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
