Growing by “Leaps and Bounds” the RIGHT every WRONG CONCLAVE co-hosted by CtrlS (Asia’s largest Tier 4 Data center) and iCONGO- (International Confederation of NGOs) in its 7th year has outlined the blue print of REX CONCLiVE- the only one of its kind platform, where people from across the glove and from all different walks are converging to lead IDEAS INTO ACTION. REX is positioned to become the Asian equivalent of TED and is based on the Eastern Philosophy and indigenous traditional progressive wisdom. REX is partnered by the UN, VSO India, Avesthagen – India’s leading Biotech Company, SOAP. REX is also supported by Kyazoonga, BBDO, TiE and Mahindra –Spark the Rise.

The Three pillars of REX are R- Right every wrong, E- Empowering and entertaining ideas, X- Xocial Innovations and Entrepreneurs. These 3 pillars together create a common melting pot of ideas where the best of the thoughts will be put on action by likeminded social soldiers and champions of change. The REX format is conceived to provide 15 minutes Rockstar speeches by global thought leaders, founders of think tanks, social entrepreneurs, international celebrities, authors, movie stars, sports stars, cultural performers and artists who shall present alternative performances related to Sufi music, classical dances and music from across the globe.

Says, Jeroninio Almeida founder & curator of REX and iCONGO (International Confederation of NGOs), It is simple and austere platform aiming at enabling partnerships between grassroots community, industry workers and people from media, government, businesses and citizens at large to generate ideas for action that can make a difference in our world and bring about a change for the greater good of humanity.”. As was said by Gautam Buddha“. An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea and thus REX is based on the Eastern Ethos of creating ideas emerge from nothingness and traditional wisdom based on pure philosophy and the will to make things happen for the benefit of the community and society.
Reminiscing back to the roots Mr. Jeronino Almeida who launched the Right every Wrong movement in the year 2006 said that ever since the movement has gained traction across the globe attracting a greater number of audience with an increasing number of illustrious individuals taking part as speakers every year. These speakers are all champions of change who are making a huge difference in our society. In 2012 the Right every Wrong movement takes a new avatar and is to be called REX. REX is the Latin word for KING and has been churning king-size thought leadership for many years now.
