• David Kwong – The famous wizard and illusions’ whisperer.
• Homayoon Kazerooni – Professor of robotics at Berkeley University, who developed the exoskeleton systems.
• Fio Silva – The new street-art star, who transforms the streets of the world.

11 great speakers will visit Greece for the first time, in order to talk to us about their first steps; steps that marked the course of their lives, with the capacity to change the course of history.

The next day, Sunday, June 28 at 20:30, a networking party will take place at Arossa (entrance is free), where the TEDxKalamata 2015 spectators will have the opportunity to meet the speakers and talk to them.
