15.10 - 15.30: The Case for Passion: why it matters, what gets in the way and where to start by Sava Riaskoff

Last year 47 million people voluntarily quit their jobs in the U.S. alone, and stats show a staggering 60% of employees plan to leave their jobs within 12 months. The pandemic has stripped our jobs down to their raw core and many of us don’t like what they found. Some are calling it the “Big Quit” others the “Great Reevaluation”. So as millions of people reassess their careers, the questions become: How to avoid the myths and mistakes that lead us here? What will make us more fulfilled next time? How do we navigate the journey? Can it be fun?

15.30 - 15.50: Blockchain: a chance at prosperity by Pulkit Sahani

The speech conveys the idea of how technology can be leveraged for wealth equality and give a chance at prosperity. It also talks about how blockchain can be applied to some of the business cases out there and improve them for the better.

15.50 - 16.10: Women in Leadership: why we need more women at the top by Melinda Keys

Women in leadership - how increased participation of women at the leadership level in politics, resources and business can bring improvements and opportunities to citizens, employees, and shareholders.

17.30 - 18.00: COFFE BREAK

 

18.00 - 18.20: Invisible hand with visible heart - how to use capital to reshape capitalism by Suwen Chen

As someone coming from Scotland, I always regard Adam Smith as its first advocate of impact investing. The concept of ‘invisible hand’ is from The Wealth of Nations on market and self-interest, while ‘visible heart’ comes from the Theory of Moral Sentiments on altruism and social wellbeing. Impact investing is where the invisible hand holds a visible heart. In this TED talk, I will share various perspectives on this topic, including why we can do good and do well at the same time and how impact measurement is similar to a baby’s sleep training

18.20 - 18.40: Why you should hire more mothers by Franc Carreras

Bringing a child to the world is one of the most generous things a human being can do. But it turns out that it can also be one of the best things that can happen to your career. Corporations big and small around the world are starting to realize that mothers are the most underestimated human capital in the workforce. In this talk, professor Franc Carreras explains how the skills typically developed during motherhood can become key assets for the jobs that will shape the future of humanity.

TEDxEsade

We share powerful ideas with students that provoke discussion and inspire the development of great thinkers.

About TED

 

What is TED?

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we're building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world's most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.

In fact, everything we do — from our Conferences to our TED Talks to the projects sparked by the TED Prize, from the global TEDx community to the TED-Ed lesson series — is driven by this goal: How can we best spread great ideas?

TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. Our agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation.

About TEDxEsade

TEDxEsade was created with the aim of sharing powerful ideas with students, provoking discourse amongst them, and inspiring the development of tomorrow’s great thinkers.

Since its inception in 2011, TEDxEsade has sought to fulfil these goals, and continues to provoke thought and debate through its annual event. TEDxEsade identifies with the TED mantra of ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’, and actively seeks out unexpected, breathtaking, daring and challenging messages, which are conveyed though mind-opening talks.

TEDxEsade is a student-run event organized by the TEDxEsade student society at Esade Business School, based in Sant Cugat, Barcelona. TEDxEsade is an independent TEDx event and is operated under license from TED.

What is TEDx?

Self-organized events, TED-like experience

In the spirit of ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events bringing people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxEsade, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxEsade events, live speakers and videos combine to spark deep discussion and connection amongst small, captivated audiences. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
