TEDxRotterdam 2011

Future Leadership

On October 13, future leaders meet current leaders from all areas of society during the TEDxRotterdam conference at the Nieuwe Luxor Theatre in Rotterdam.

Our future leadership is represented by 1,200 excellent Bachelor and Master Students in their final year, while over 100 CEOs of leading businesses and organisations represent today’s leadership. This year, TEDxRotterdam focuses on Future Leadership. In a groundbreaking program with 25 speakers, surprising connections are made between current and future leaders, resulting in a new leadership movement (for this country).

We expect both current leaders and the next generation to contribute actively in the program. TEDxRotterdam encourages participants to take action and responsibility, share knowledge and break down barriers. We expect guts, the ability to think out of the box, and really make a difference.

Lead the future! Get out of your comfort zone! Take ownership! TEDxRotterdam 2011 expects you to create surprising new opportunities. On October 13, TEDxRotterdam brings leadership to the next level.

About TEDx

x = inde­pen­dently orga­nized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to organize local, independent TED-like events around the world; and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
