The University Chancellor Dr Annie Lennox OBE is to give a speech at the renowned TED talk series in Glasgow next month.

The TEDxGlasgow event will welcome 2,000 attendees to the SEC Armadillo on Friday, June 14, and will provide a platform to present ideas focused on the theme of Connection.

The Chancellor is set to talk about global feminism and will be joined by a host of inspirational speakers, including Baroness Helena Kennedy QC and Skyscanner's former chief operating officer Mark Logan.

Dr Lennox, one of the world's most influential Human Rights campaigners, is a truly committed advocate of global feminism and recorded a short video message for the University to help mark International Women's Day in March.

TEDxGlasgow is a non-profit organisation, which builds on the global TED culture of creativity, innovation and collaboration. Aiming to provide a platform to present the brightest and best ideas from Scotland to an international audience, the organisation independently coordinates an annual event that brings together influential and inspirational individuals from all walks of life.

This year's event is hosted by journalist Clare English and comedian Fred MacAulay. For more information on TEDxGlasgow Connection and to buy tickets, visit the event's website.
