Felicity Fellows is a US based, global development expert – with a passion for connecting people and ideas.

Felicity’s career history is as diverse as the countries she’s lived in. Lately she calls New York home, following stints in London, Sydney, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Along with roaming the globe she also enjoys the freedom to cross sectors – spanning media, technology and the arts. Her deep and extensive experience in strategic alliances, large-scale deal negotiation/closing, and mobilizing networks through the creation of extraordinary experiences – all strive towards the improvement of culture, community and human connection.

Currently, Felicity is focused on building philanthropy at TED Conferences – leading partnership development for the worldwide TEDx phenomenon.

Prior to joining the TED team in New York, she successfully spearheaded major multi-year agreements with brands such as Airbnb, Google, Intel and Maserati – as the Head of New Partnerships at the UNESCO World-Heritage listed Sydney Opera House. During this time, she also designed development strategies and new initiatives for local TEDx events in Sydney, Havana and Mogadishu.

Before joining the ideas circuit, she fueled her endless love of music working directly with major artists, labels and on the road with the Southern and Northern Hemisphere’s largest touring festivals – including Big Day Out Australia, Richard Branson’s V Festival UK and Vivid Sydney.
